We love it as a salad, just adding onion, tomato, cucumber, nuts, even grilled eggplant or zucchini and perhaps chick peas and feta then toppeds with mint, cilatro, basil or whatever you have.

Lemon Herb Quinoa with Hemp Seeds, Spring Peas, and Basil (do a search on this website) is perfect for the warm weather. I've used this recipe a few times, once as written and other times with variations. However, my favorite to date on this site is the "One Pot Kale & Quinoa Pilaf" that's on this site.

I like to turn leftover quinoa (and other grains) into these hearty crepes And for anyone who was saddened to read about the quinoa "crisis" ( I was thrilled to find that they are growing quinoa right here in Colorado. I have yet to try it but apparently it has morphed into a new, black quinoa and is supposedly really good.

Just another comment with regard to quinoa; people tend to cook the crap out of it. It cooks up faster than white rice. Don't abuse it.

Breakfast "oatmeal". Into the rice cooker with cinnamon and milk, then serve with passion fruit and yoghurt. YUM.
