My family won't eat quinoa dishes and I don't want to make it for myself but I do want the added nutrients. So, I've been relacing one tablespoon of rice per cup with quinoa, rinsed well and cooked with the rice as usual in the rice cooker.

I've often thought about making it in the rice cooker but always forget when I'm in the kitchen. Have you tried more than a tablespoon in the cooker?

One tablespoon per cup is all I can get away with sneeking in. :lol: I do this with brown rice too -one quarter part per cup-but, as you may know, if you cook the brown rice with the white on regular cycle, the brown will be firmer than the white. I don't mind but my family complains.

BTW the Japanese ladies magazines have recipies for multigrain pilafs or alternative grains in the rice cooker from time to time-even Orange Page and Tanto, which we can get in the U.S.

I head back to Japan on the 5th for at least a month. Going to the worlds largest food show again which is always interesting.

Last year I took the soba class and went to an allergy seminar on the rise of wheat allergies in Japanese school children who follow a more westernized diet. Not sure what programs they will have this year although I have to give one on fig varieties.

Hope to have time to do picture guide to gluten-free foods at health food stores in Tokyo. Last year I found this sorghum gluten-free soy sauce which is really good.

Will look for the magazines since I always bring back bunches for my son the chef.

This article about quinoa was on msn.com. It has some tasty-sounding recipes. I think they are mostly gluten-free already; although, it's possible some minor mods might be needed.

Thanks! I haven't made quinoa in a while. My family is not super crazy about it, but they will eat it with black beans, rice, and sauteed veggies.

Hi everyone! This is my first post in this forum. I have to thank everyone your help.

The thing is that now I am living in Tokyo, and my girlfriend, who has the Celiac Disease came last week and we have to find some place to buy food for her.

Now, I will go to the Foodex, one of the biggest food fair in the world, as an IT assistant, so I can collect a lot of data if you show me the way :)

Thank you very much!
