Malaysian Quinoa (Vegetarian)
Quinoa and soya chunks with satay sauce. You can vary how much water you use in the sauce depending on how wet or dry you like it. This is a great recipe for vegetarians who want a quick, tasty meal but have no fresh produce in the fridge!
Quinoa is a high-protein, good-for-you grain. It can be substituted for couscous and makes a lovely side dish. This recipe is a crunchy, lemony, healthy dish that can be used as a side or as a light meal.
Quinoa Vegetable Medley
I came up with this recipe with items I had on hand. It turned out pretty tasty, so I thought I'd share it.
Cheesy Quinoa Pilaf with Spinach
This creamy pilaf incorporates the fluffy, nutty-flavored grain, quinoa, with a decadent and delicious goat cheese gouda. This has an amazing flavor and texture. Try serving with steamed salmon. I think this would work well with pine nuts as well as a variety of other cheeses. Try regular goat, Parmesan, blue, etc.
Quinoa with Sweet Potatoes and Broccoli
The flavors of the broccoli and sweet potatoes compliment each other wonderfully in this recipe! I wasn't sure if steaming the sweet potatoes was necessary or not. It might be okay to skip that step. However, I wasn't sure if they would get tender enough by just cooking them in oil, so I went ahead and did it and it turned out great!
This tabouli recipe is different. Instead of using bulgur like traditional tabouli, this recipe uses quinoa. It is a grain that is available at health food stores. It looks and tastes better than bulgur. My husband and I both love this and neither of us is vegetarian. It's a great meal for a hot summer day. The longer it sits the better it tastes.

This delicious recipe was presented to me by a vegan friend. The lime juice gives the quinoa a fresh flavor that can't be beat!
Quinoa with Sweet Potato and Mushrooms
Sweet Potato, onion, mushrooms, and chopped pecans are served over a bed of quinoa. This dish is perfect as a warm meal or side dish during cold weather.
This Mexican-style quinoa can be a healthier alternative to Mexican or Spanish rice. The gluten-free quinoa adds protein, fiber, and great taste while keeping all the flavor and spices of your usual Mexican or Spanish rice dish.
