A couple of weeks ago, we stopped in at Whole Foods.  It was my first time in the store, and I LOVE it.  Picked up some red quinoa.  It's one of my favorite foods, and I was turned onto it by a good friend, Sonja Amundsen.  Usually, I make a salad with it, but this time I tried a new recipe.  Quinoa Cakes with Eggplant-Tomato Ragu and Smoked Mozzarella.  I will admit the cakes didn't stay together very well... probably because I made them the size of huge pancakes, but the texture of the quinoa lightly fried was excellent (cut down on the oil when you fry them).  I made some changes to the ragu... used regular mozzarella, and omitted the red peppers and parsley.  Very tasty.

Here is the recipe I used from
