I need healthy ideas. What has worked for you that turned out well with quinoa? Thanks so much.

-Cook it in broth instead of water. Add whatever spices you love at the beginning.
-Google guinoa+Mexican for tons of recipes. I like to cook it with pepper/salt/chili powder and heap on black beans, tomato, diced onion, diced peppers, cheese, and avocado to make a burrito bowl.
-After cooking in broth, add cheese and stir. We do mozzarella and parmesan.
-Sub it for pretty much any rice recipe except risoto/paella.

Yesterday I made quinoa bowls with roasted vegetables and chicken. Quick, easy and tasty.

I doubled the vegetables and chicken to feed 3 and had leftovers.

I have several books from my Kindle options with recipes. I tend to like it as a salad type dish. I also like to just put a few spoonful on my lettuce salad. And I recently had leftovers and I heated in the the microwave, added a bit if maple syrup and almond milk and had an alternative to steel cut oats (sort of).

It cooks in roughly the same amount of time as rice so I mix them. I like 2 parts rice, 1 part quinoa. I rinse them both together and then cook them the same as rice but with 1.5 water to rice/quinoa. To clarify: 2/3 cup rice, 1/3 cup quinoa, 1 1/2 cups water.

I eat it for breakfast with blueberries and a little coconut oil.

After cooking it in a rice cooker, I would freeze it in silicone muffin cups and then transfer the frozen nuggets to a ziploc type bag. I'd put a nugget in the salad I took for my school lunch, which I made in the evenings and refrigerated.

Use it in a bowl with hummus, peppers, olives, cucumbers, any leftover veggies, red pepper dip from Trader Joe’s, and anything else you have in fridge!

I like both of these salads. I usually put them on a bed of greens.

I like these casseroles:

Same as many of the PP's - I eat it cold in salads, warm with veggies on top, almost any which way.

For me the game changer was cooking it in the Instant Pot. Consistently delicious and fluffy. Here's a recipe I use often:

Instant Pot Quinoa

ratio of quinoa to liquid is 1:1 1/3 cups
(I usually do 2 cups quinoa and 2 2/3 cups vegetable broth)
rinse the quinoa
place in instant pot with:
drizzle of olive oil
handful of chopped cilantro
1 chopped jalapeno pepper
and/or 1 can chiles
juice of 1 lime
healthy dash of cumin

Cook on high pressure for 5 minutes. It can sit in there after on warm for as long as you want. Fluff with a fork when ready to serve.

I also make it with dried cranberries and slivered almonds.
