How to Cook Quinoa
We love this diminutive grain for its gentle nutty flavor, speedy preparation time, and exceptional nutritional profile. Whether you choose white, red, black, or a rainbow blend, our basic recipe turns out perfectly cooked quinoa every time.
Instead of oat or bran muffins, try these moist breakfast treats to fuel your morning. Substitute other chopped dried fruit for the raisins, if you like.

Shiro miso, a Japanese soybean-rice paste, imparts a salty-sweet note to this substantial salad.
Pork Tenderloin with Kale Salad
In this easy and nutritious weeknight recipe, a kale salad is prepared and left to marinate in the dressing, which ensures crunchy—not tough—greens (thanks to the tenderizing effects of the olive oil). Meanwhile, a super simple pork tenderloin is seared and baked, along with earthy sweet potatoes and nutty quinoa that both are tossed into the salad before serving.
