13 quinoa recipes for morning, noon, and night

A superfood for every occasion

With chia seeds popping up in the breakfast aisle and kale on every corner, it's easy to think that we're living in the superfood golden days. While it's true that people ate berries, salmon, and dark leafy greens long before marketing geniuses came up with the concept of superfoods, it's also probably true that we enjoy more obscure grains than our grandparents did.

Chances are, your grandmother did not eat quinoa. Maybe you didn't even eat quinoa — until it became ubiquitous overnight, that is. Now it's showing up in your breakfast, your lunch, your dinner, even your dessert. Here are 13 ways to make a meal of it.
