What's your tried and true recipe that doesn't involve broccoli?

do you mean ki noah?

that's how my dh and dd pronounce it round here.

i think you have to rinse it first. that's all i got. we're not exactly culinarily advanced around where i live as you can tell from above.

that's my go to a few times a month. kids request them. i have altered the recipe quite a bit at this point, but they were still good the first time i made them before i'd doctored them so much. i will say that the sweetener is NOT necessary. you can do carrots or zucchini. any cheese. sub out sour cream or greek yogurt for the cottage cheese. change the seasonings.

my kids love when i do mexican seasoning. they love the italian ones (i have added small pieces of pepperoni).

i do mine on a griddle, so i can fit about 6-8 on there at once. much faster.

i have found that rice flour works just as good as regular...i prefer it.

if you up some of the ingredients by just a hair, you can add another egg and i find it works better.

I've been advised to toast it first in a skillet. Click here to enlarge. I've never gotten around to making it either but Olive's recipe looks great.

Olive's recipe looks really good!

I think it helps to cook it in something other than liquid. I've done a kind of stir fry where I cooked the quinoa in pineapple juice and stir fried veggies, including shelled edamame, with some pineapple and soy sauce and sesame sauce. Kind of like fried rice.

I also do it where I cook the quinoa in chicken broth and cook together onion, garlic, spinach, and sundried tomatoes and then stir it all together with some good olives and feta cheese.

I just cook it like rice or toss it in soup. If I cook it like rice I eat it with soy sauce.

Rinse it, peoples, if you don't it's like eating soap. Lots of saponins (chemicals like soap) just sitting on the seed coat, easily rinsed off. Click here to enlarge

I make my beef stew and then dump a bunch in the pot. Then I even out the liquid when it sucks up all of it. Click here to enlarge
My kids love it. Oldest DS ask for it as a treat. It must have the quinoa in it. Before those little crazy grains they wanted no part of my stew.

The brand they sell in the grocery store here is pre-rinsed. I serve it as a more nutritious alternative to couscous, mostly. Like the Pillsbury Bake-Off chicken recipe (here: http://www.pillsbury.com/recipes/sal...3-a08910ff2a4f ) calls for couscous, and I use quinoa instead.

I also made this recently: http://www.closetcooking.com/2013/04...om-quinoa.html and liked it pretty well.

Oh, and THIS:
http://makingthymeforhealth.com/2013...e-gluten-free/
is freaking awesome, although it's also super fragile and I can't imagine taking it out of the pan and doing a layer cake like in the picture. Click here to enlarge I baked it as a 9x12 sheet cake, frosted it in the pan, and served it up that way. I was baking for a friend who has to avoid gluten. Everyone thought it was awesome and delicious.

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy.

Breakfast
1 cup Silk Pure Almond Unsweetened Vanilla almondmilk
Ĺ cup quinoa, uncooked
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Ĺ teaspoon vanilla
Ĺ Tablespoon chia seeds (or ground flax seed)
2 Tablespoons raisins
1 Tablespoon almond butter (optional)
Instructions
Rinse quinoa and drain.
Place almondmilk and quinoa into a small sauce pan and bring to a boil.
Add cinnamon and vanilla.
Reduce to a simmer and cook about 15 minutes, or until all liquid is absorbed. **Watch the pot carefully and stir often because it has a tendency to want to boil over.
When ready to eat, place a portion of the quinoa into a bowl, drizzle with maple syrup and top with chia seeds, raisins and nut butter.

You can skip the chia seeds and add walnuts, but it is really good.
