Quinoa recipes



I just learned that it is high in protein and a great alternative to meat, which I'm trying to eat less of. I had it for the first time last night when the wife put it in a stew with tomatoes and butternut squash.

Anyone have any other recipes for a 'meatless Monday' featuring this stuff?

Thanks - I don't even bother with the search function these days, but it appears I should have

I knew there was a recent thread on it and the google function works. Not great, though.

re: Quinoa recipes


Those are some good-sounding ideas, despite the fact it's a link to a link to a link, etc.

I do a caprese one with tomatoes, fresh basil and buffalo moz.

I also do a mexican one with black beans, corn, Rotel, cumin and cilantro.

I always cook it with chicken or veggie stock instead of plain water.

I make quinoa and black beans using this as a guideline. Even my kids eat it this way.

That's pretty much what I do except I add Rotel.

I make a bortobello/shitake quinoalaya. Make it just like jambalaya but substitute mushrooms for meat and quinoa for rice. Also, it gets a bit more flavor if you use veggie stock instead of water.
