    Yum, I love it i use it instead of rice or couscous. Cook it either on the stove top or in the rice cooker. I make a really nice breakfast porridge with it from Michelle Bridges 'lose the last 5kg' book.

    This is making me hungry!

    Great Choice

    The Salad
    • 1/2 cup quinoa, rinsed and drained
    • 1 cup water
    • 2 cups fresh or frozen corn kernels
    • 1/2 large red pepper, diced
    • 1/2 large green pepper, diced
    • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
    • 1 400g tin can red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
    • 80 grams Coriander, chopped
    The dressing
    • 1/4 teaspoon dried ground oregano
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
    • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
    • 1 fresh chili finely chopped to taste
    • Juice of 1 lime
    • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    • Salt and pepper to taste
    1. Place the quinoa and water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat, cover and simmer until all the water is absorbed (about 10 minutes). Remove from heat, and let cool in a large bowl.
    2. Dry-toast the corn in a non-stick frying pan until it turns golden. Remove from heat, and let cool.
    3. Add the corn, red pepper, green pepper, onion, red kidney beans, and coriander in the bowl with quinoa, and mix well.
    4. Mix all of the dressing ingredients, and toss well with the salad ingredients.

    I've used it instead of oats in muesli. I cooked it with half water, half apple juice and added fruit, nuts, seeds when it was done. I put yoghurt on top, a bit like Bircher muesli, lasted a few days in the fridge, was really nice!
