I use Quinoa in place of rice, it kind of has that texture, but less sticky. I also make salads with it & use it in place of other grains in recipes. There are a couple of recipes on Spark Recipes

I have been having oatmeal with blueberries for breakfast. Apparently the fiber in oatmeal actually helps to sweep cholesterol out of us, and the blueberries are an anti-oxidant super fighting power food! they also provide a sweet burst in every bite :)

I'm interested in the Quinoa though. What is it's texture like, cooking time? and have you tried it in anything besides as a breakfast cereal?

I was surprised to read about the possible health benefits of so many foods.

Tomatoes are actually gr8 cooked which releases the lycopene, so tomato sauces are back on the table now! Even a thin crust pizza with extra sauce piled high with veggies and very leanest meats, light on the cheese can be a good choice!!! Woot!

For breakfast almost every morning I have Quinoa (pronounced /kwɪˈnoʊə/ or /ˈkiːnoʊə/, Spanish quinua, quínoa, or quinoa) is a species of goosefoot (Chenopodium) grown as a crop primarily for its edible seeds. It is a pseudocereal rather than a true cereal as it is not a grass.

Its protein content is very high (12%–18%). Unlike wheat or rice (which are low in lysine), quinoa contains a balanced set of essential amino acids for humans, making it an unusually complete food. This means it takes less quinoa protein to meet one's needs than wheat protein. It is a good source of dietary fiber and phosphorus and is high in magnesium and iron. Quinoa is gluten free and considered easy to digest. Because of all these characteristics, quinoa is being considered as a possible crop in NASA's Controlled Ecological Life Support System for long-duration manned spaceflights.
