Black Bean and Tomato Quinoa

Perhaps it’s the lime dressing, which infuses the dish with flavor without overwhelming it in goo. It could be the quinoa, which has a distinctive nutty taste far superior to white rice and its lamer brethren. Or, maybe it’s the tomatoes, black beans, and scallions, which reminded one friend of "the insides of a really good burrito."
Whatever it is, it’ll make you forget uninspired diet food. :-)Submitted by: KRAVMAGAGIRL

Quinoa Pilaf

You can lighten this recipe up by using non-fat parm but I love it this way and it still is a reasonable calorie count. The quinoa makes this pilaf extra nutritional. One of my family's favorite sides. Could also be a good main meal by adding cubed chicken breast or just leave vegetarian (use vegetable stock instead of chicken). Sometimes I add a different variety of veggies like green beans.Submitted by: CLINARD
