Microwave Cooked Quinoa Alfredo – Quick, Easy & All in Pictures

Last couple of posts have shown how to cook fantastically flavorful and incredibly nutritious quinoa either on the stove or in the microwave oven. I’ve since heard from quite a few people who’ve said they’ve started to use quinoa and mostly serve it plain. Plain is fine, but here’s a quick and easy way to add a nutritional punch to an Italian favorite by making Quinoa Alfredo in the microwave oven.

You’ll see in the picture below showing what you’ll need that this recipe calls for evaporated milk instead of the traditionally used heavy cream to make Alfredo sauce. Evaporated milk has half the calories and 1/5th the fat of heavy cream though both evaporated milk and heavy cream have similar cooking and flavor properties. I love that!
