For a sweet breakfast or special treat I cook quinoa in rice cooker and serve in vanilla or chocolate almond milk. Very tasty!

And for a meal check out this recipe - very comfort-food-ish and tasty.

I look forward to seeing other responses

I have a friend who tosses quinoa into a spinach, strawberry and avacado salad and it's really yummy topped with a fruit vinaigrette

I like to make a pan of quinoa and toss in some spinach, grilled chicken, mozzarella, and sun dried tomatoes for lunch.

My veggie cookbook has a recipe for "cheesy chickpea and quinoa bake"
1 T margarine/butter
1c coarsely chopped zucchini
1c celery
1c chopped scallions
4c water
2c quinoa, rinsed and drained
1c canned chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1c shredded cheddar, divided
1/2c shredded swiss, divided
1/4c seasoned dry bread crumbs

preheat oven to 350 and coat a 2qt casserole with cooking spray

in a large frying pan over medium heat, melt the margaine/butter. add zucc., celery, and scallions. cook for 3-4m or until tender

stir in the water, quinoa, chickpeas, 3/4c the cheddar and 1/4c of swiss. Spoon into prepared casserole. Cover and bake for 45m or until the liquid has almost been absorbed.

Sprinkle with bread crumbs and remaining cheeses. Bake, uncovered, for another 15-20m or until the liquid has been absorbed and the cheese has melted.

I think I may make this in the next week. It sounds yummy, anyway.

Any greens like kale, escarole, bok choi, etc. sauteed in a little oil with garlic, ginger, and Bragg's are AWESOME over quinoa and topped with toasted pine nuts or sunflower seeds
