Thanks for the recipe Will! I will definitely have to try it. It looks easy to make too, which is a big plus for me.

I like it in most of the soups I make and it is great in vegetarian chili too.

I love quinoa. Try this delicious recipe. I know anyone would love this one:

Quinoa and Black Beans

1 tsp olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 shallot, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 cloves garlic
¾ cup uncooked quinoa, rinsed briefly in cold water
2 cups vegetable broth
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup frozen corn kernels
2 (15 ounce) cans black beans, drained
½ cup chopped fresh cilantro

Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the onion, garlic, shallot, celery and sauté until lightly browned. Mix quinoa into the saucepan and cover with vegetable broth.

Season with salt, and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 20 minutes. Stir frozen corn into mixture and let simmer about 5 minutes until heated through. Mix in the black beans and cilantro.

Simmer for 10 minutes, turn heat to low. And it’s ready to eat it up.

I have a couple of friends who do not like quinoa, but they love this recipe. ENJOY.

I bought some quinoa last week....haven't used it yet. Glad to see someone else just tried it for the first time and liked it... will have to look for some recipes though to use with.

No, I don't mind at all! I was glad to see the thread title in the email.

I have most often seen quinoa used as a base for other foods, as you might use rice or potatoes. I do have a few recipes that incorporate it into one pot meals, and a few for pilaf-type dishes. If your library has anything by Lorna Sass you might check them out. She uses it in her veg books.

Flo, I hope you don't mind that I went ahead and did this.

I cooked quinoa for the first time tonight. It turned out pretty good. My daughter didn't like it, but I'm sure I can get her to like it. Draining it was something else! But let's just say that I found a new use for the splatter screen that goes on pans. So much grain went down the drain because I didn't know what I was doing. I will definitely make it again. I liked it. Does anyone have good quinoa recipes? Oh, and my husband said it looked like bird food. He started calling me Tweety. Haha!
