    Great ideas! Another question...how do you cook your quinoa? I've only done it once with a friend at their place. I think it was one cup quinoa to two cups water and let absorb. Is that right?

    That's roughly the ratio I use.. I think I read its 1:1 though I always end up having to add more water.. cook for 15 mins

    I've only used quinoa in place of rice in meals. As for chia seeds, I use them alot. Apparently cooking them kills of their nutritional value so that might be something to keep in mind if you were using them for that reason. If not, there is so much you can use them for. I make a gel with the chia and water in the fridge and use it as an egg replacer in muffins, cakes, etc. I sprinkle them on top of salads, add them to smoothies, on top of toast. Avocado, a squeeze of lemon juice, salt and pepper, with chia seeds sprinkled on top is one of DS' s favourites.
    If you are on pinterest, it's great for inspiration- there are heaps of chia seed recipes and mostly likely quinoa too.

    Thanks so much for that. I wondered if cooking the Chia meant I'd lose some nutrition. I'll focus on raw if possible then, and still experiment in cooking.

    I have never used chia, although I think I might try after reading some of the yummy ideas on this thread
    These are my two fave quinoa salad recipes:
    http://www.everydaycook.com.au/2013/...cabbage-salad/
    Both of my kids eat this one (I serve it to them minus the herbs, lemon and nuts and add them in later for dh and I)
    And
    http://tastefoodblog.com/2013/05/09/...bbouleh-salad/
    This one I chop all of the salad ingredients, cook the quinoa, mix it all together and set some aside for the kids before adding chilli, dressing, spices, garlic, herbs etc for us). 4yo dd calls it rainbow salad.

    I add chia seeds to porridge (my favourite use for them) and bliss balls.

    Make sure you rinse it well, I do 1 cup of quinoa to 1-1/4 cups water, after rinsing leave it in the saucepan for 15 mins to soak, bring to the boil, cover it and reduce to simmer for 15 minutes, take off heat and fluff with fork

    Thanks elijahs mum. I made some this morning and its a little mushy so I think this could be the lack of rinsing. Thanks for that!
