50 Ways to Love Your Quinoa

You’d think I would eventually run out of ideas for quinoa. I’ve posted over 50 recipes on this page over the years. But ideas keep coming and I keep loving this grain (O.K., Paleos, I know, it’s a seed, not a grain. But we use it on the plate like a grain, so that’s what I’ll continue to call it.)

One of the culinary artists of our time, Deborah Madison, opened up a new world of quinoa ideas for me in her latest book, “Vegetable Literacy.” In some of her recipes she uses quinoa more as a garnish than as the main ingredient. I thought about that when I started work on new quinoa salads.
