I think it's really great with curry chicken and veggies.

I'm trying the Quinoa and Black Bean Spark recipe that was posted a few weeks back on the blog. I have to make a few modifications from what it calls for but nothing that should make a big difference in taste.
I don't use pasta anymore and no one notices it either.

I also use it in place of rice, however it makes my kids gag (they seem to be a bit dramatic) but if I use half rice and half quinoa they don't notice it. I also cook it with some chicken broth to flavor it up and eat it alone or as a size with a protein.
"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. It doesn't happen, what does happen is you get results. Lifting Barbie weights does nothing but waste time.

the best advice I can give:
- if it's the red kind with the outside still attached, rinse well (soak for a while, if you have the time)
- it's a fairly neutral product (like couscous, rice, etc.), which means that whatever you cook with it; it will adapt to that flavour - either sweet or savory
Experiment to your heart's content.
It can be cooked in a rice cooker, and frozen in portions, to add to other things, if you wish

we love it in soups, overnight soaked for breakfast the next day and even just cooked with a little squirt of liquid aminos, sometimes we will chopped veggies and serve it hot or cold mixed with vinegarette

I had an amazing lunch today at a local restaurant, a Quinoa Power Bowl. It had - of course - quinoa, as well as chicken, some feta, carrots, kale, and other good ingredients. I promptly went to Trader Joe's and bought some quinoa, ready to amaze my family with how good this can be.
So here's my question to you: How do you like your quinoa? Any favorite recipes? (I'll check the recipe database, but I'd love to hear your thoughts, as well.) Thanks!
