I am trying to mix up meals in my household and today at the store I bought a bag of tri-color isrealie cous cous and a box of organic quinoa, and I made sure to get plenty of chicken stock to cook them in to add flavor but I'm just not sure what to do with it sometimes. I just need some ideas.


what are your favorite quinoa and cous cous recipes ?

 Google quinoa mac n cheese.  I can't remember what recipe we used but it is quinoa, heavy cream, I think an egg (?), cheese, spices to taste.  I add diced chicken and it's amazing!  I do the same bbq quinoa salad as slimtabulous but I don't do the sauce and I add avocado.  It's one of my favorite things ever!

I make a great Mediterranean cous cous salad. It has lemon juice, EVOO and pepper for the dressing and then chopped tomatoes, chopped fresh mint, and chick peas.

I also like to do cous cous with shrimp scampi, instead of pasta, it really soaks up the yummy scampi sauce!
