Okay, I want to try out quinoa. And yes I know Loki has the most awesome quinoa pudding recipe. But I'd like to try something else. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> Does anyone have any other ideas? What does it taste good with?

i use quinoa a lot in places where i would otherwise use rice.<br><br>
it's great in burritoes, as a side slathered with gravy, or a little olive oil and sea salt, or plain with some steamed veggies and baked tofu on top. it has a nice, kinda nutty flavor. it's also really nice in chili.

Quinoa pilaf is really good. Cook the quinoa in some veggie broth then add whatever veggies and seasonings you like. I usually add some peas, onions, diced red pepper, LOTS of garlic, and a bit of olive oil. Yummy and easy.<br><br><br><br>
I will also agree with Miss Gulch, especially about the chili.

mmmmm.... pilaf.... yum! i make it a lot with quinoa for my dd. i like to cook it in veg broth and add some matchstick carrots, raisins, sliced celery, onion and vegatable orzo, plus some herbs for flavor. i mix in some finely crushed cashews at the end to give her some nice fattyness and to provide a rich, "creamy" flavor.

lol - It's great to see that everyone knows about my apple pudding! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> I also found this recipe, which i've been meaning to try out, but I procrastinate over:<br><br><br><br>
1 teaspoon vegetable oil<br><br>
1 cup uncooked quinoa<br><br>
1 small onion, cut into fourths nd sliced<br><br>
1 medium carrot, shredded (2/3 cup)<br><br>
1 small green bell pepper, chopped (1/2 cup)<br><br>
1 cup sliced mushrooms (3oz)<br><br>
1 tsp chopped fresh or dried thyme leaves<br><br>
1/4 teaspoon salt<br><br>
1 can (14 1/2 oz) vegetable broth.<br><br><br><br>
Heat oil in saucepan over medium heat. Cook quinoa and onion in oil for 4-5 mins. stirring until light brown.<br><br><br><br>
Stir in remaining ingredients. heat to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer about 15 mins until liquid is absorbed. Fluff with fork.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
You can use it like rice. Just add some seasoning and eat it. Serve with something cool, like a portobello or some tofu.<br><br><br><br>
But if you do want to make the pudding, you know you can't resist!!! You'll find it on every quinoa thread on VB except for this one! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Charity: Once you get the Quinoa - you can also try sprouting it. It's good that way too <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
I had quinoa just yesterday - made it like fried rice and had some raw daikon on the side - that was the meal (and it was mighty tasty)
