Ive never found this at Walmart, gonna check it out. A guy on youtube made a dish out of this, he kind made it like rice but he added fresh cut salsa n water. Im sure the quinoa absorbed the flavor of the salsa to make it bearable.

I make it like oatmeal and add cinnamon, Splenda and/or Truvia, a tbsp. of coconut oil, and a little almond milk. Sometimes I mix it half and half with steel-cut oats. I make it in a rice cooker/steamer and use a 2:1 ratio of water to quinoa.

Try adding some low sodium chicken seasoning its like 5cal and it helps making it not so plain.I use it for pasta works pretty good.

I like quinoa and blue agave nectar (honey); it’s awesome! Maple syrup works similar too. Regular honey is alright, but maple syrup and agave honey taste similar and well in quinoa, imo. Gives me a reason and a use to buy blue agave nectar, but I don't know how great of a concept that is. Also note the pronunciation of quinoa irl (keen-wah); you'll look legit saying that right.
Also, think about spices; not just for this recipe, but whenever you need to add some more taste. Spices are great alternatives to other choices such as ketchup or w/e. Many spices contain omega 3s, fiber, vitamins/minerals etc. Low doses sure but more than you get in processed toppings. Try ground cumin with quinoa or rice.

probably my favorite is to cook the quinoa, throw it in the fridge till its cold, chop up onions, peppers and a little bit of celery plus some minced garlic and toss it into the quinoa with some olive oil.

sometimes I add goya sazon to the quinoa as its cooking before I do that, but most of the time I do it with nothing but a little sea salt and olive oil added to the quinoa during cooking.

Cook in chicken stock or beef stock (low sodium) add some onions, bell peppers, pepper. Can even top that with some parm

4 cups low sodium chicken stock
2 cups quinoa
2 bay leaves
3-4 crushed and sliced garlic cloves
ground black pepper and salt (if your allowed)
Bring chicken stock, bay leaves, garlic, salt and pepper to a boil, allow to boil for 5 minutes, then add quinoa, lower heat to low, cover and allow to simmer 15 minutes, then remove from heat and let sit covered for 10 minutes before serving.

Use the above basic quinoa recipe, but after it has sat for 10 minutes add the following:
1 bell pepper sliced
1 pint cherry tomatoes (halved)
1 seeded cucumber sliced
1 bunch scallions (sliced)
1/4-1/2 olive oil (depending on how much fat you can spare)
2 juiced lemons
Stir everything together, let sit in fridge or on counter 1-2 hours before serving, serve at room temperature (can be made a day in advance, and keeps well also)

I've tried the red variety of quinoa, the taste is slightly milder and had a little more texture than the standard quinoa.
