Thanks, Kay! I saw quinoa the other day for $8 for a small box at Albertsons - big box stores have it for way less, I found the same thing at Big Lots for $4.50/box.

That's herbed goat cheese and fig jam on top of the crackers in the background. Delicious combination!

One way to prepare Quinoa

I have to agree with Cheryl here, quinoa really shines in cold salads. I'm not sure I would care for it much served hot....willing to try though :) I thought I had posted a recipe similar to Cheryl's, I will have to go look for it, it had avocado and a couple of kinds of citrus. With a citrus vinaigrette

Sounds like it would be good in tabbouleh as a substitute for the bulgur.

It is, taxy. I've subbed quinoa in a tabouleh dish before - like most grains (even though it's really a seed) it takes on whatever flavors it's mixed with.

Cheryl,I found the recipe and got it posted under salads. I was searching for it and found another thread where we were talking about Quinoa and I was bemoaning the fact that the site would not accept my recipe from my phone and I would have go to the computer.....I guess I never did! I have now though. :) yum!
