You’re probably interested in quinoa recipes that you can make for your children for at least a few reasons...
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.
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.
No spoonful of sugar needed here. A spoonful of quinoa is all that’s needed to help the nutrition go down!

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...
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.
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.
But our kids loved these burgers so much we decided to put the recipe on this page.
We know your kids will love them as much as ours did!
Here are the ingredients...
As you can see in our video, this recipe made 4 medium-sized burgers. Double the recipe to feed a larger -- or hungrier -- crowd.
All in all I’d say we spent 20-30 minutes on this recipe.
