I use chicken broth to boil it and then add veggies - would help reduce the fat content. Submitted by:

Describing this recipe as "protein-rich" is laughable. There's only 7.5g of protein! So to put that into perspective, this 300 calorie recipe is 25% of my calories for the day, but only provides 13% of my protein... I've made much better recipes than this just tossing together things from my fridge Submitted by:

Needed a flavor boost with leeks. But quinoa is my favorite side dish---just remember that it packs a punch, nutritionally, and the calories show it.

The difference between one serving of Quinoa and Basmati Rice is 3 grams of protein more for the Quinoa and 4 more grams of carbs for the Rice. However, according to the SP the RIce have WAY more nutrients. Adding protein will boost the calories but make it a complete vegetarian dish Submitted by:

I love quinoa. It's high in protein for a grain. Great for rounding out a vegetarian meal. I'm always looking for quinoa recipes. Submitted by:
