I thought that you might like to try this recipe. I love using quinoa because it is a complete protein all by itself. This is the original recipe that I got, but I think that if you follow it as is, it would be somewhat bland and savory. I wanted mine sweeter and I was using honey so I acually ended up doubling th honey as well as the spice. I added sliced almonds, some chpped walnuts, raisins, and cut up dried figs. You can jazz it up in your own way, but it is a healthy side dish or snack. I warmed it up in the oven for breakfast for a few days. Loved it.
Cook 1 c. quinoa in 2 c. water. (rinse quinoa before cooking. combine with water and simmer about 20 minutes.)
When done cooking, let cool.
Beat 2 eggs (mine were jumbo, I'd use 3 if yours are large)
Stir into eggs:
2/3 c. coconut milk (or any kind of milk would work)
3 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice or 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
4 tbsp. raisins or other fruit
2 tbsp. nuts (omit if you prefer)
2 tbsp. sweetner of your choice (agave nectar, honey, molasses, maple syrup)
1 c. canned pumpkin (if you don't have this on hand just up the eggs to 4)
Mix with qunioa.
Put in pie dish or other ovenproof dish.
Bake at 350* for 25-30 minutes.
Cool slightly before serving.
