Food52 has lots of quinoa recipes, in all categories from breakfast to dessert. There is also a good blog at www.quinoa.net full of information, basic techniques and recipes. Most of the time we just make a pot up plain, then serve it as is or dressed up later.

Cook plain first. Then you can add cold it to salads. Make pilaf, instead of rice. I used it last night mixed with onion, garlic, spinach, tomatoes sauteed. Then stuffed into par-baked zucchini boats and baked off with a little melted mozzarella.
I've said make a salad and use quinoa instead of lettuce ...can't go wrong.

We always cook enough for leftovers and enjoy it for breakfast by stirring in some lemon zest, a bit of maple syrup and topping with orange sections, toasted (unsweetened) coconut and almonds and a whap of homemade ricotta. It also makes good burgers/patties if you stir in cooked vegetables and an egg.

We just had Melissa Clark's Quinoa with Brown Butter and Arugula tonight. Delicious! It's from her book "Cook This Now."

I use quinoa as a substitue in tabbouleh (but add cucumber). Pre-cook the quinoa then let it cool. Mix with tons of chopped parsley, diced tomatoes, diced onions, diced english cucumber, lemon juice, olive oil, and salt/pepper. Great side dish for grilled meats.

Don't forget mint! And some fried chickpeas is you're feeling brave.
