Freezing Quinoa

Did you know that you can freeze quinoa?  I read about it over at Not Rachael Ray.  I figured it was worth a shot.  So, when I made Broccoli Quinoa Casserole in November, I cooked up the entire box and froze what I didn't use in ziplock bags in 1 1/2 c and 1 c portions. 

This was a huge time saver for me, doing the cooking just once.  When I used the quinoa, I let it defrost in the fridge first.  Guess what!  No one noticed a difference in texture or flavor.  I've heard you can do the same with rice so I might have to give that one a try next.
