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.

Quinoa Pasta-less
Very Good 4.1/5
(7 ratings)

My family loves pasta salad for picnics. Since I haven't been eating pasta as part of my diet, I would just make it and do without. Well, for Labor Day, I realized I didn't have pasta and decided to use some quinoa I had in the pantry. This is tasty, nutty and HEALTHY!! Your family will most likely NOT miss their pasta. Add green and red pepper, chopped onion, small diced broccolli and cauliflower, cucumber and any garden fresh veggie to make even better!

Chicken vegetable soup with quinoa
Very Good 4.3/5
(7 ratings)

The quinoa adds a nutty flavor to this simple soup made from packaged, fresh and frozen ingredients.

***UPDATE*** When I was packaging up my leftovers, I realized that this only makes 11 servings, not 13. I have changed the info so it is more accurate now.
