Why Make Quinoa Recipes for Kids?

You’re probably interested in quinoa recipes that you can make for your children for at least a few reasons...

It's nutritious

You want to give your kids the nutrition they need. Quinoa’s nutritional portfolio is legendary. High in protein, low in fat and carbs. It’s gluten-free and moderately low in its Glycemic Index.

It's tasty

But not only is it filled with nutrition -- it’s also really tasty. Food doesn’t have to taste like sawdust to be healthy! Quinoa has a rich nutty flavor and pleasant fluffy texture.

Your kids will love it!

No spoonful of sugar needed here. A spoonful of quinoa is all that’s needed to help the nutrition go down!

So, let's get to the quinoa recipes for kids!

Quinoa Fried Custard Cakes

You might wonder why we have such a strange-sounding recipe on a page of quinoa recipes for kids.

Well -- simply -- because our kids loved these cakes! You’ll see at the end of the video above that our youngest son was very disappointed when they were gone.

So, here are the ingredients...

Quinoa Fried Custard Cakes Ingredients

  • 1 Cup cooked quinoa, packed into a measuring cup
  • 1 egg
  • ⅓ Cup almond milk
  • 1 Tbsp oil
  • 1 tbp vanilla
  • 3 scoops stevia
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ⅛ tsp salt

Quinoa Fried Custard Cakes Instructions

  1. Put the quinoa, egg, oil, vanilla, stevia, and salt into a food processor, mix, and transfer to a bowl.
  2. Add the almond milk and baking powder and stir.
  3. Scoop small pancake-sized amounts onto a pan or griddle and cook on medium-low until brown.

This recipe fed Lori and the two boys. Though you can see that our youngest didn’t think it was enough. So you might want to make a double batch!

These custard cakes took about 30 minutes to make.

Tuna Quinoa Burgers

We could have put this recipe several places on our site. It’s made with quinoa flakes, so we could have included it on our quinoa flakes recipes page.

  • 1 five-ounce can tuna, flaked
