While the quinoa is cooking, roast some strips of carrot and parsnips that have a bit of olive oil and sea salt until tender. Chop am apple. Then combine quinoa, apple, carrots, parsnips and add some drained and rinsed chickpeas. Stir it all and top with toasted walnuts, sea salt and some white wine vinegar and good quality olive oil.

This is one of my favorites: "Quinoa with Watercress, Pomegranate and Pears (and you could also substitute apples for pears if you prefer)http://franklin.wholefoodsmarketcooking...
And another great one is "Quinoa with Grapes, Chicken and Almonds" (and if you're veggie, just simply omit the chicken) I added orange zest to this one to give it an extra zing: http://franklin.wholefoodsmarketcooking...
I myself have to confess that I am a "Quinoaholic" :)
I like to use a blend of red and white quinoa b/c the red is a little nuttier and it adds color to the dish, and also I've found that in most cases, adding a vinegar and/or a citrus and fruit and herbs are the key to a fun and delicious quinoa salad! Have fun!

Quinoa has achieved visibility since it first became available commercially in the US in the 80's. There is an entire website devoted to quinoa -- whole, flour, flakes and pasta -- www.cookingquioa.net. I've found many good recipes and good ideas, and she covers the basics well.

I tested this warm quinoa salad with butternut squash, feta and cherry tomatoes. http://www.food52.com/recipes... It's excellent! In fact, it's addictive. I usually don't buy cherry tomatoes unless they're in season, but I made an exception for this recipe and was glad I did. ;o)
