2019 Recipe Contest – Quinoa!

Quinoa, pronounced “keen-wah,” is a nutritious grain-like seed that originated in the Andean Mountains of South America. It is a good source of dietary fiber, phosphorus, iron, and magnesium and contains a complete amino acid mix, making it a rich source of protein. Read more about this superfood here!

No professional cooks, please. Your recipe must include quinoa as the main ingredient and must be original.

All entries must be received by February 15, 2019. Winning recipes will be shared on our website, on social media, and in the 2020 Farmers’ Almanac. All recipes become the property of Almanac Publishing Company.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
