Oh, I was gonna say I have a great soup recipe but someone beat me to it, thanks.
You can use it to make tabbouleh or any type of rice salad.
Also I made these the other day, take a few minutes but they are YUMMY!
Quinoa, Black Bean and Sweet Potato Burgers
1 medium onion, diced
2 Tb olive oil
3 to 4 garlic cloves, minced
1 carrot, finely grated
1/2 can black beans, slightly drained
1/2 of 1 baked sweet potato, flesh scooped out
2 cups cooked quinoa
1/2 cup bread crumbs
3 Tb chopped cilantro (I used 1 Tb dried)
2 Tb tomato paste or ketchup
hot sauce or cayenne pepper to taste
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste
1. Saute onion and garlic in oil.
2. Add beans to pan and cook for 2 minutes more, stirring now and then.
3. Turn off heat. Mash beans in pan til they're about half crushed. Put in big bowl with all the rest of the ingredients and mix thoroughly. If too moist, add more bread crumbs.
4. Form into patties. Grill or bake.
(I baked mine - VERY nice!)
