The super grain quinoa! here is a recipe to try

I LOVE quinoa and am experimenting with it.  It is really good for us and can be very tasty.  here's a good recipe with a southwest flair:

QUINOA AND BLACK BEANS

10 servings \
Ingredients:
1 teaspoon vegetable oil  
1 onion, chopped  
3 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
3/4 cup uncooked quinoa  
1 1/2 cups vegetable broth  
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper  
salt and pepper to taste  
1 cup frozen corn kernels
2 (15 ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained  
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Directions


1.Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the onion and garlic, and saute until lightly browned.
2.Mix quinoa into the saucepan and cover with vegetable broth. Season with cumin, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes.
3.Stir frozen corn into the saucepan, and continue to simmer about 5 minutes until heated through. Mix in the black beans and cilantro.
(I also added a little salsa, can substitute red and green pepper chopped for corn)

That's sounds great.  Thanks for sharing!

I use it instead of bread crumbs or oatmeal in meatloaf.  

I'm going to use it stuffed peppers here soon.

That's my favorite recipe. I've experimented with other veggies too. I made a quinoa salad today with sundried tomatoes garbanzo beans and artichoke hearts that was really good.
