6. We use quinoa just like rice.
You can pretty much interchange the two--the flavor reminds me of brown rice with a texture like couscous. But if your quinoa isn't already rinsed, make sure you do that. We got unprocessed quinoa once and didn't realize we were supposed to soak it and rinse it, and it came out really bitter and soap-tasting. Yuck. If the granules are light-colored, though, you're fine--it's already rinsed. Unprocessed quinoa is dark brown.

It's particularly good when added to vegetable soup. :)
