    Into the rice cooker put:

    1 cup Quinoa
    2 cups water or chicken broth
    2 TBSP reduced sodium soy sauce
    1 TBSP powdered ginger
    2 heaping tablespoons roasted garlic
    a few 'shakes" of red chili flakes

    Cover, turn it on and wait until it's done like you would race. (20-25 minutes or so) Top with a little sesame seed or chopped green onion if you want.

    I made a recipe I got from Skinnytaste.com: Mediterranean Quinoa Salad
    Made with quinoa, cucumber, tomatoes, red onion, kalamata olives, olive oil, lemon (I used red wine vinegar), salt, pepper, feta cheese (I omitted that). DELISH!

    dark red kidney beans
    turkey kilbasa
    creole seasoning

    cook quinoa according to directions. While it's cooking add in 1/2-1 teaspoon of creole seasoning (whatever your preference). Heat kidney beans. Heat kilbasa. Combine.

    I'm another one who cooks up a batch and puts it in the fridge. I use it in place of any kind of rice and most pasta dishes. It's a good filler food. I even took a pasta salad recipe and substituted the pasta with quinoa.

    I'm eating a Quinoa salad as I am typing!

    1/4 cup Qunioa
    1/2 cup Water
    Bring Water to a boil, add Quinoa. Lower heat and cook until water is absorbed(About 6 minutes)

    In a bowl combine your favourite veggies.
    I like to keep a Broccoli slaw on hand and I toss in Tomatoes, Snap peas, cucumber and Onion.

    Dressing: Mix together lemon juice, some garlic, oregano and a little bit of olive oil(1/2 a teaspoon) and stir together.

    In a bowl mix Quinoa, Veggies and stir in dressing. Voila! Delicious!

    You'll be prepped, cooked and eating in less than 10 minutes!

    I make what I call a Greek Quinoa. I cook it as normal, although I do use broth instead of water to help flavor. Then chop roasted red peppers, olives, Mediterranean seasoning, and a bit of Feta toss it all together and its a yummy side warm, or a lovely lunch cold. :)
