I have a chapter in my new book dedicated to Quinoa…this recipe is not in that chapter. Why? Because I only just thought of it. Bummer really cos it’s really delicious and would have been perfect. Lucky you….You don’t have to wait until December or some time around then to get your hands on it. December seems so far away, and yet it will be here in a heartbeat. In the meantime, make sure you stay on top of all the fun stuff I am trying to do for Thermo mixers in a generic sense. My recipes will easily cross boundaries of machine brand. SO…no matter what your machine of choice, please give these recipes a go. Hell, if you have a great food processor, a cooktop, an oven and a knife, you can make these recipes.

Thanks for all your support, purchases and general fun feedback. Hope you enjoy this one as much as we do!
