  • If you add damp baking paper

    Submitted by korrick on 29. March 2015 - 20:38.

    If you add damp baking paper in bottom of varoma make sure you poke holes in the paper to let steam in or else it won't cook. I found the quinoa went mushy and fairly flavourless. It wasn't a favourite in our house. Sorry.

    Submitted by salby9 on 18. April 2014 - 20:43.

    I'm sorry if this is a really silly question, but how do you steam the quinoa/pumkin? Pressumably you need liquid in the bowl? Water? How much?

    now i made this recipe the second time, delicious like the first time, but it was now very dry and clumpy, is it possible that the quinoa absorbed the fluid of the dressing because i made it in the morning and we had the salad in the evening.

    Thanks for respond

    tmrc_emoticons.) This is our all-time favourite. The flavours are exquisite together. If we have people coming over for a BBQ, this will always be on the table. It's inexpensive to make when you have those ingredients in the pantry, and comes together very quickly.

    @Vandenm :I place a layer of dampened baking paper underneath the quinoa. Also it swells after soaking and rinsing,  if you ever want to cook it in the basket.

    Fantastic, on saturday i was on a brunch where they cooked all with quinoa because quinoa is not so popular in germany and so i had all the ingredients for this recipe at home. Delicious.

    Thanks for that.

    This went down really well as a salad to complement our BBQed meat.  It was great as an alternative to potatoes.

    Submitted by Vandenm on 23. September 2013 - 18:20.

    Maybe a stupid question, but how do you steam the quinoa in the varoma, as it is a lot smaller than the holes in the varoma and will all fall into the tremo bowl?
