I had to experiment with quinoa a while before I found things I really like. I tried quinoa as a breakfast food (a sort of oatmeal kind of thing with fruit, etc) and wasn't a huge fan. However, someone recently mentioned cooking it in apple juice. I haven't tried it, but I think I might like it for breakfast.
I found that I like it the most in savory things, and specifically things more substantial than a simple salad. I will often cook it in vegetable broth or another kind of liquid to increase the flavor options. I really love it topped with a poached egg.
Here are some of my favorite recipes (I do make some of these a little healthier - by cutting back on the amount of olive oil used for roasting/stir frying, by replacing any fried eggs with poached eggs, and by baking or grilling any sort of patties instead of frying them: www.figaliciousfood.com/2012/08/avocado-st
(I love the spices on this one. I top it with some cheese and a poached egg!)
