I like quinoa. My husband makes a mean moroccan tagine dish w/venison, vegetables, raisins, etc..OMG! I sent some home w/a friend and she said her boyfriend licked the inside of the ziploc baggie clean he liked it so much!! Anyway, instead of serving it with couscous I always make quinoa. It makes a perfect substitute.
I made this wonderful salad (my own variation of one in paper) that included:
flaked salmon (though chkn works too)
roasted red peppers
steamed asparagus tips
fresh chopped red bell pepper
parsley & basil fresh chopped
I probably added some of the GF Annie's Tuscan salad dressing. Everything is cut up into small pieces and tossed w/the quinoa.
There may have been more ingredients and I have the recipe somewhere.
A friend made a version of this one night when we ate at their house (had the salmon that night). I made the above version and we (me, hubby & m-i-l) took it to a Memorial Day celebration the next day. It is a cold salad and I packed it in the picnic cooler. It was wonderful.
Quinoa is wonderfully versatile.
