ocrob.....it definately is bland on its own- that's why it's perfect under or in something! It takes on the flavors that you cook with it. I don't care for it by itself, like you can eat rice alone. Herbs and spices man!
I made a big ole batch of it and put it in tupperware in my fridge. Now I grab a handful of it and add it to just about anything. I threw a cup of it in the oatmeal cookies I made yesterday, I threw it in couscous with eggplant, I threw it in my oatmeal this morning. It really doesn't taste like much but definitely takes on any flavor it is around.
And a complete protein in everything you mix it in! FTW!
I love how it pops in my mouth! I used to make a thai peanut pork recipe back in my omni days. I plan on converting that at some point to a veg*n recipe. But basically here is the sauce:
2 red bell pepper, seeded and sliced into strips (I hate bell peppers so I left them out)
1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup chopped roasted peanuts
2 limes, cut into wedges
You cook it all together except the peanut butter, green onion, and peanuts (this was a crock pot recipe...but just simmering it for a bit would work). The last five min you add the peanut butter and then you serve it with sprinkled nuts and green onion. I found the nutty sauce really went well with the nutty quinoa. YUM!
