Quinoa.. (I'm finally figuring out what to do with it..)

shown here with red & black quinoa
"Mexican" Quinoa

1 cup quinoa (dry, however much that comes out to cooked)
1 jar of salsa
about 1 cup of corn
about 2 cups of black beans (drained/rinsed, 2 cans if using cans) 
a bit of salt, taco seasoning, and/or cumin to taste

cook the quinoa - 1 cup dry to 1.5 cups water, boil water, add quinoa, cook for aprox. 15 mins, fluff with fork

add other ingredients to cooked quinoa, stir  - serve on a tortilla, over chips - add sour cream or cheese if you're into that ;) (i tried it with a tiny spoonful of non-dairy sour cream and it was fabulous)

everything but the quinoa - yum
"Italian" Quinoa

1 cup black beans
1 can mushrooms
1 can diced tomatoes
4-5 cloves of garlic
1 cup onion
3 cups squash/zuchinni
1 small can tomato sauce 
oregano, basil, thyme, and salt to taste

combine ingredients and simmer in a medium pan for 20-30 mins

serve over cooked Quinoa
