who has a good Quinoa recipe?
 
i have some organic inca red quinoa that i cooked upin lieu of rice the other day. thought it was pretty good, but i didn't try anything particularly exciting with it.

anyone have a recipe using quinoa that they really love?

You can use quinoa in place of rice in anything ;)

We just had it tonight. I have the recipe in a thread in OD under, what's for dinner-wednesday :D

We had enchilada's tonight but we also use it in place of rice in oriental recipes and as a side dish. We love to replace the water with chicken stock and a slice of butter ;)

It's really nice and fluffy when you lightly fry it up before adding the water. I like to add nuts (especially cashews), peas, corn, or tomatoes. Raisins are nice for a sweet bite, and any veggies or seasonings you like, too. I love curried coconut veggie dishes.

Did you know that quinoa is a complete protein? Like rice needs beans to be a complete protein, but quinoa is complete by itself. :thumbsup:

quinoa makes great tabbouleh. That has always been my fave recipe for it.

Just tried a really great salad sort of thing yesterday at Trader Joe's. It has canned/prepared things, but still pretty healthy I think!
It just had (all from trader joe's obviously)

half a box of fast cook Quinoa
a drained can of sweet corn
a drained can of black beans
a tub of fresh salsa
and a bunch of cilantro dressing

I made it at home and it was super yummy here too, but a little more "wet" than in the store, so maybe next time, I'll use less dressing and drain the salsa first.

We ate it plain, and in whole wheat tortillas. I think It tastes better cold.

OHhhhhhhhh I love quinoa!
My favorite recipe is making stuffed peppers with it. You make it like any other old stuffed pepper recipe, but the filling consists of:
quinoa
fresh corn
feta cheese
olive oil
little bit of fresh cilantro
sea salt and pepper to taste
garlic
chickpeas
I'm a very unconventional cook-- I just kind of throw how ever much of each ingredient I want in there, so I have no particular measurements to give you.
Try it--it's awesome!
