In my experience the most important thing about Quinoa is to rinse it thoroughly! I figured that out the hard way  Tongue

There's an amazing Peruvian restaurant here in Portland that treats quinoa like risotto. So delicious. I haven't tried it at home yet though.

It's great as a number of side dishes for lunch and dinner. Or even as a breakfast cereal Smiley

Breakfast cereal?  Now that sounds interesting.  I've learned that quinoa is a grass seed interesting in itself. DIL made some last week and it was "interesting".  She made it like you make rice.  No distinct taste but a very different texture in the mouth.

if you can get Quinoa flakes they cook like quick cooking oats, add 1/2 cup of milk to 1/4 cup of quinoa flakes and microwave for a minute add butter / sugar / cinamon

Oh, I love quinoa.  It's like a carb with bonus protein.  I sometimes use it as side dish, just as one might use rice.  It's also good to toss into soups, although it won't thicken them as starches well.  Ditto on rinsing well!

I just returned from a year in Peru, where I ate quinoa all the time. Its easy to cook, healthier than rice and goes well with pretty much anything. One of my favorite simple things to do with it used to be to cook it with a little crushed (fresh) ginger and use it as a side dish to whatever vegetables I was cooking. And one small cooking tip: never add salt to the water you're cooking quinoa in! Its a Peruvian rule the ladies at the market always used to tell me, they say it makes the quinoa cook incorrectly.
I also use this recipe from epicurious, which makes a really delicious cold mango, curry, quinoa salad.

Good luck!
