Quinoa with broccoli, dried cranberries, feta and pistachios over salad greens is a weekly meal around here. Super easy to throw together and filling.

Also, I like the red quinoa better than the white, seems less bitter to me.

I found a quinoa recipe that combines it with garbanzo beans, cherry tomatoes, basil, spinach, mint feta, and a red wine vinegarette w/ smoked paprika. I'll try to pull it up if you like that kinda thing.

If anyone's interested in nutrition, I urge you to read the China Study or any writings by Dr. Joel Fuhrman. It's the largest study ever conducted on the relationship between diet and disease in people. Pretty interesting stuff and some surprising findings. I'd argue that it's not complex carbs that are killing people, but simple carbs, certain types of proteins, and the wrong kinds of fats....basically we're overfed and undernourished.

Anyway, don't want to go off on a rant, but take a look at that stuff and draw your own conclusions - there's a lot out there about diet that we've been misled on.

I think the running theme to making stuff like quinoa tasty is to add some flavor bombs here and there. Stuff like pickled peppers, tangy cheese bits, acidic fruit, roasty nuts...whatever.

We like to make Greek quinoa salad. Some feta, oregano, Greek olives, lemon juice, garlic powder, red peppers, grape tomatoes, banana peppers. Whatever you like. We make a big batch on Sundays and it is lunch for 2-3 days during the week. Gets better the longer it sits.

Edit: As far as carbs go, I prefer mine mostly fermented.

I can't vouch for the recipe as I've never made it, but I just found Hilah on youtube and she's entertaining if nothing else.

What I do with Quinoa is I make Jamaican style "gravy" and shake it liberally (the only way a true New Yorker shakes it) over steamed Quinoa.

The gravy is a mix of cane (or cider) vinegar, whole scotch bonnets, olive oil, and soy sauce that has been allowed to do its thing for a while in an old rum bottle.

I like it a lot, SWMBO does not like it at all. YMMV.

I eat this stuff all the time. Fry up some churizzo in a pan with onions and poblano or any pepper you have, when its done add quinoa and chicken stock, same ratio as cooking rice 2 to 1 stock to quinoa, and some peas and corn. stir and season with s&p, garlic and whatever if you like. i think it needs to cook in the liquid for like 15 min or so may be 20, until all the liquid is gone. delicious
