Can dry, uncooked quinoa be added to chop to help soak up some moisture if it is frozen and then thawed and is a bit wet? I see a lot of chop recipes where people cook the grain, then I saw one you tuber who put it in dry to soak up excess moisture. I wanted to know if that would be safe. Thanks.

I am not comfortable adding a raw grain, like rice for example, as there could be swelling that could lead to health issues. If I have a really wet chop, I add raw steel cut oats or pellet powder (I save it for bird bread).

I use cooked quinoa in my chops. I cook it and refrigerate it for a day before adding. Try that and see if it pulls up enough of your moisture.
