BBQ Chicken Quinoa Bowl (link, quickie recipe below)
Inspired by an article on the Weary Chef blog. Conveniently, we had leftover barbecue chicken and pork in the house. This would also be good with the addition of 1/2 cup beans.

Place 1/2 cup cooked quinoa in a bowl. Top with 1/2 cup shredded barbecue chicken (or pork) and additional barbecue sauce. Warm in the microwave. Top with a sprinkle of cheese, and heat for 30 seconds on High until the cheese melts. Serve warm.

This recipe is an excellent. The cooked quinoa texture is similar to oatmeal. I made the muffins with regular 2% milk and not buttermilk, and they turned out delicious. I used an ice cream scoop to portion out the batter and got 15 tasty muffins (not 12).
