Cookbook creator says: This was Very tasty. I added a can of Rotel tomatos and a tobasco pepper from the garden for some heat. I didn't have white beans in the house so I used red kidney.

Introductory quinoa recipe. It's not exactly a side item, but it's not vegetarian either. And it's poultry solely by virtue of the chicken broth... so here it sits, in the side items section.

Great for lunches or as a simple summer supper. You could replace some of the basil for oregano and turn it into a greek delight.
