I received this product free from Influenster for testing purposes; however, I was not paid, & all my opinions are my own. #EasySuccessQuinoa #contest #complimentary @SuccessRice @Influenster
It the first time we had whole grain 🌾 quinoa in our house. So I'm so grateful for the fact it's 10 minutes a boil in a bag. So much easier.
I used the microwave instructions.
The quinoa was ready in 15 minutes.
I added to in cooked chickpeas.
Some Salt pepper & Cumin and Walla the quinoa dinners is ready.
My husband and I loved the taste of this whole-grain quinoa. So grateful we had the chance to taste how amazing it taste.
It's on our grocery shopping list!!!
Thank you 😊 #influenster, @successrice, #easysuccessquinoa.
Success® Boil-in-Bag Tri-Color Quinoa 12 oz. Box
First of all, I absolutely love the price of this product. I am a huge fan of quinoa and oftentimes I'll get it with the dry goods that you have to measure and weigh at the grocery store or I'll buy the tiny pre-seasoned boxes that are equally as expensive. Although quinoa is a fantastically healthy food (it's a complete protein...meaning it contains ALL 9 amino acids), it can weigh heavy on the wallet. According to the price list in my VoxBox, a 12 oz. box retails for $2.36. The box contains 4 individual packets. One packet alone made a great side-dish for two meals that I shared with my toddler. Normally, one small box of quinoa costs me around $3 or $4 and I would estimate that those small boxes equate to just one Success quinoa packet. So, you definitely get more bang for your buck with Success.
The second thing I love about this product is the convenience. You simply measure water, put it in a saucepan, put in your boil bag of quiona, wait for it to boil, allow it to boil for 10 minutes, remove, cut open, and season. This is great for moms or anyone who doesn't want to be bothered with measuring dry products. It's easy and there's less clean up from the extra measuring.
Third of all, I love that it isn't mixed with a bunch of other random rices, seasonings, or ingredients. The ingredient list is simple...white, red, and black quinoa. That's it! It allows for a lot of versatility unlike those preseasoned packets. The box suggests butter and salt, if desired. I did that and it was great! I also imagine that it would taste wonderful with any other seasonings you choose (for example: I love quinoa with rosemary or lemon pepper).
Finally, I love that it's toddler-approved. My child loved it and I always love when she loves something healthy.

This package comes with four separate bags that you pop right in the pot and boil for 10 minutes for a super yummy side dish.
I added two chicken bouillon cubes to my water, and allowed it to come to a boil (which I wasn’t supposed to do) before adding my bag of quinoa. While it was boiling, I saw on the box that I could let it go for an extra minute or two for fluffier results, so I kept it on the boil for twelve minutes instead of ten.
While it boiled, I crushed one clove of garlic into a paste and browned that and two tablespoons of butter in a pan. When the quinoa was done, I drained it then emptied it into a serving bowl. I poured on the browned butter and garlic, along with a generous sprinkle of salt and some black pepper, and mixed it until it was all evenly distributed. Then I added about a teaspoon each of lemon zest and lemon juice, and a tablespoon of Parmesan cheese.
The results were DELICIOUS and super easy. I was so delighted by this dish that I can’t wait to try more recipes with the remaining three bags!
Earlier this week, my husband and I were planning dinner. He had purchased steak tips and we didn't have of our normal go-to sides in our cupboard and I remembered that we had the Success® Boil-in-Bag Tri-Color Quinoa 12 oz. Box . We had it as a side and my husband loved how easy it was to make. He added some butter, salt, and pepper and it was a quick, easy, delicious, and healthy side to go with our meal. I loved how easy it was to clean the pan afterwards - I didn't have to scrub the pan because it was so easy to boil in the bag.
We will definitely be adding this to our normal go-to sides for our cupboard!
This was the last product for me to review and for a reason, my cooking skills are a little weak.
Or at least out of use.
But I was pleasantly surprised that this turned out great and was actually easy.
I found a recipe for Easy Mexican quinoa because I wanted to make sure to find something savory and flavorful.
I added chicken broth, black beans, corn roasted tomatoes with chilis, garlic, chili powder, cumin, salt and black pepper to taste.
I added some more tomatoes for garnish and a splash of lime because I like that tang!
I served it on the side of a rotisserie chicken I picked up from the market, warm tortillas and yummy avocado. Plus, I decided tonight is a wine night! Success® Boil-in-Bag Tri-Color Quinoa 12 oz. Box
This turned out tasty despite my cooking skills so yay!
Plus it only took 25 mins to cook! Love it! I definitely need a quick recipe I can throw together at night.
I found lots of different recipes online (including breakfast ones) so I can prepare and serve this in a variety of ways.
So cooking win for me! And for the fam!
Anyone else try the Success Quinoa? Do you have a favorite quinoa recipe?
