Puffed or Popped

One of the more surprising ways to eat quinoa is to puff up the healthy grain — much like popcorn — which gives it a nuttier flavor. Once it is popped and prepared, you can eat it like a snack or use it to make breakfast bars like these no-bake cinnamon-raisin granola bars.

You can even buy quinoa prepopped, then top your favorite dishes with the protein-rich puffs.
