How do you prepare your quinoa? I mean what do you put it with or in? How do you like it?

i make a batch, then split it up into rubbermaid containers for work. at work i mix with different vegetables. my favorite so far is canned tomatoes -the oregano, basil ones. soooo delicious. and it makes a very filling lunch.

I actually buy mine at Costco.  The usually carry an organic brand that we love.  We don't eat much grain at all, but when we do, we eat gluten free ones.

We used it just like we would use rice.

I have it as a side dish just plain with a drizzle of evoo. I have also mixed in diced tomatoes & basil, or sautéed mushrooms, red pepper, & scallions in olive oil & garlic, & tossed it with the cooked quinoa. I've seen recipes that mix in cooked beans, but haven't tried that yet.

Kroger has started carrying some flavored styles and they are on the same shelf as Uncle Ben's and Rice A Roni.
