It's good in a dried granola mix with fruit and honey, or mixed into yogurt with fresh fruit. I do agree that boiling it into tasteless paste makes for a nasty meal; I think that it's much harder to pull off cooked.

Imagine a more corn-like cream of wheat with the texture of fermented soy beans.

What happened??? Did it make you fawt when you thought you were feeling romantic?

I use it all the time, no gluten, high in protean, goes well with almost anything. Too expensive because it has to be hand harvested, or at least that is the explanation I heard.

I think you're probably right.... it's got a slimy quality that is too much for me to get over.

I actually really like these veggie burgers: http://scene7.targetimg1.com...

I've never had quinoa isolated, though, so I wouldn't know about how that would taste...

It is best mixed with a natural granola bar.

I'm not even a vegetarian and I think that they taste better than most actual meat products. Plus you can just microwave them, which is great if you're as lazy as. I am.

The idea of microwavable food sounds tempting...

Yes, it definitely is. And while we're on the topic, I can't stand kale either. I know it's great for you and all that, but no. The flavor is weird and the texture just doesn't lend itself well to the things that people make with it. It might be better cooked (I have yet to try it), but in a salad it's kind of horrendous. Don't even get me started on the smoothies.

Ugh, this. There are one or two salads that I can deal with it in, but otherwise I hate it. I especially hate it when someone makes a perfectly delicious smoothie, you watch them put everything in, and it looks delicious. Then, as if being deliberately evil, they pick up some kale and drop it in. Bastards.

And it's even worse cooked, in my opinion.

It's completely different, very crunchy. I like Siggi's Skyr as a yogurt; it's low in sugar, high in protein, and really dense and delicious.

This is a good store-bought granola with quinoa in it: http://www.cascadianfarm.com...

Quinoa is also considered to be a excellent choice, given the nature of it, which includes; a complete protein (all amino acids present), high fiber, and the abundance of various beneficial micronutrients. Many foods that share a similar profile can be considered nasty as well, but the nutrient content supersedes taste, in my opinion.

Most plants are worse cooked imo. I love fruits and veggies, but I cannot figure out why people would do something so horrible as cook broccoli. Potatoes are an obvious exception to this, though. I love me some mashed potatoes.

Yeah, I agree. I'll cook mushrooms, onions, carrots, potatoes, and asparagus, but only if they're going in a larger dish like boeuf bourgignon, beef stroganoff, or marsala dishes. I never cook brocolli, and I adore both peas and carrots fresh, especially home grown ones. However, soup is an exception to every rule.
