Gluten-Free Cranberry Pistachio Quinoa Pilaf, Simply Gluten-Free
A crunchy and colorful pilaf is always a welcome side, and we love this one for its contrasting flavors and textures. Dried cranberries, roasted pistachios, fresh chives, lemon juice and Ancient Harvest Quinoa strike that ideal balance between sweet and savory.
Apple and Sage Quinoa Stuffing, Fit and Frugal for Ancient Harvest
Why we only seem to eat stuffing once or twice a year is a true mystery, as it’s a tasty and hearty dish that can easily be made nutritious as well. This version is full of plant-powered Ancient Harvest Quinoa, butternut squash, apples and fragrant herbs.

Quinoa Con Leche, Cocina de Cella
In many Spanish-speaking parts of the world, arroz con leche (rice pudding) sweetened with condensed milk and dusted with cinnamon is a classic component of the holiday feast. Here, nutritious Ancient Harvest Quinoa takes the place of white rice to create a modern spin. We think it might just become a new favorite.
