Take your dining menu to the next level by exploring quinoa dishes! Quinoa is a versatile dish and can be used in any meal throughout the day. For example, it can be used as a warm breakfast option for those who prefer to go gluten-free, a hearty dish packed full of energizing protein for your work lunch, or as a great side dish with dinner. Here are just a couple quinoa recipes you can quickly make in your commercial microwave to delight your guests:

To create this dish quickly, you will first need to gather all the ingredients: 1/2 cup of rinsed and drained quinoa, 1 cup of cold water, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon (add on a little more for garnish later on), 2 teaspoons of butter, milk or cream to taste, maple syrup to taste and a handful of banana slices. First, add your rinsed and drained quinoa into a microwave-safe dish, stirring in 1 cup of cold water, cinnamon, and butter. Place the dish into your commercial microwave oven and microwave for 4 minutes. * Then stir and microwave again for 3 more minutes.
