Thanks for visiting my blog.

After seeing your great blog and all the contestants blogs I see I shall have to do a lot of visiting :-)

I love all the recipes as they all look wonderful and as I am fairly new to quinoa I have now got tons of ideas to try out. If I have to choose one it will be the California quinoa sushi rolls.

They all look scrumptuous.

For me it's a tie (is this allowed?). Both Dori's sushi rolls and Virginie's Clafouti demionstrated an innovative use of quinoa--plus their recipes are clear and farily easy to follow.

Good luck everyone!

I'm a winner even if I don't win, look at all these great quinoa recipes I get to have! I hafta admit that this has been the funnest thing I have done since I entered a bread into a county fair competition a few years ago.

Of course I vote for me, but I am making that sweet dessert Virgine has entered very soon... it's a winner too, especially love the countryside pictures posted in this blog entry !

man!!!! I am thoroughly confused!!! can I vote for all of them.. I mean I've never had sushi in my life.. but those rolls look delish.. I have had keenwa burgers and they are punk rock.. lytchee is one of my fav. fruits.. and that jelly looks awesome.. the keenwa "cookie" :-) by zenpawn looks good.. the sushi salad is like yummmmmm... the creamed keenwa sounds very interesting.. the clafouti au keenwa too just looks FAB!! and the teddy recipe is something I often use and know is really good.. I am sooo confused.. my vote to everyone if that can be done!! if only 1 vote.. then its split between lytchee jelly and the extra simple quinoa recipe!!

Blogger Melody said...

I think they all look great! I've only tasted my Sushi Salad and it was sure good, but the rest of it looks awesome too. I'm especially intrigued by the Quinoa "blanc-manger" with lytchees & rose jelly.. so very creative..

Hmmm.....
Tough decision...
But I have to go with my mom's sushi rolls...
Because I ate most of them!

This is so difficult. There are recipes for every meal. I learn many things during this conselt, in terms of making as of combinations with the quinoa. After a very long hesitation, I vote for Primary Consumer, as I'm fond of spinach and this kind of "decadent" sauce. My compliments to everybody. I've got many recipes to test.

Great idea, t.!! They all looks so amazing, i could not pick one of out the bunch. Nice preparation and look - artistic, each one! Wow. I'm blown away, really.

Nice event,everything looks amazing.
I have never tasted quinoa, it's not smth available in Turkey.
My vote goes to Dori's burgers since I love vegan burgers.

Just a nit. "Qualming Quinoa" should be spelled without the 'u' in the first word, lest we think of qualms rather than calming. ;)

Blogger primaryconsumer said...

They all look amazing! It was really hard to pick just one, but I am quite intrigued by the Quinoa "blanc-manger" with lytchees & rose jelly by Bea, so that gets my vote.

Blogger t. said...

Erin, jeesh! sorry! I think I have just typed "Q+U+I" so many times in that post that it is already something I did not wrote "Quialming Quinoa" instead!
Mistake rectified!

I vote for the "Qalming Quinoa", it really look amazing & yummy !!!
:D

Wow, those are all such beautiful and original looking dishes! I’ll have to go take a look at more. I also tend to forget about dry goods in my cupboard like quinoa, barley and millet. They’re so good and good for you, I should really make more whole-grain dishes.

They all look fantastic! I printed out primary consumer's creamy spinach/mushroom quinoa. I can't wait to try it.

I vote for the homemade pickled ginger and the quinoa sushi.

Hmmmm... this is a tough decision! I do love sushi, but the presentation for "Qualming Quinoa" is so creative and pretty, I think I'll go with that one ;) Good job everyone!

P.S. I agree with Zenpawn- but it is a cute title- quinoa is such a cool word :D

I love the nori rolls! I thought about doing that a long time ago but forgot about it. They look delish, I bet the flavor of pickled ginger goes well with quinoa. Please tell me when you do this contest again, I would love to submit a quinoa recipe.
