Mouse's Better Than Mac 'n Cheese (Quinoa Risotto)

The following is basically a risotto, but made with quinoa as the grain. (Less starch and higher protein than the rice.) I followed the grain to liquid ratio HERE, but I used olive oil instead of butter, added sage and pine nuts, and used just 2 small garlic cloves. Wish I'd had some mushrooms to throw in. I recommend using a good freshly grated Parmesan because the quality is everything to the flavor, you will miss out if you cheat and use Kraft!

I've also made this recipe spiced with golden raisins, chopped apples, onion, nutmeg, and cinnamon. You can also add millet to the quinoa, just as long as you still use one cup grain to two cups water.
