I stole my way to cook it from Claire.  I grill veggies (zucchini, carrots, whatever) and stick it in there.  It's really good just like that.  If you toast the quinoa on the stove dry and then add water to cook it, it already has a really good taste.  You don't need to do much to it. :)

 I use it as a substitute for rice. I use it to make black bean and quiona tacos. I will also heat it up in the mornings and put blackberries, blueberries, and strawberries with almond milk.

Definitely as a replacement of rice. Make sure you rinse it before cooking, and check for stones (I broke a crown on a stone eating Quinoa once). 

I like to cook it in some veggie broth. Then I add some mixed veggies, such as leaks, kale, celery, carrots, beats, etc. I eat as it, or put into a burrito with some beans. YUM!

I cook it with veggie or chicken broth. Then I bake veggies like beets, carrots, sweet potato with a little olive oil and a little salt. Half the time I make chicken too and eat it all together. It's yummy.
