What is Quinoa?

What is Quinoa?

Quinoa is my latest flirtation. It is also an edible seed that originated in South America and has been imported for around 6000 years according to wiki-smarty-pants-pedia. It has a high protein content compared to most grains and a light fluffy texture that’s somewhat similar to couscous.

It’s pretty easy to prepare quinoa and the subtle, nutty flavor makes it a fairly blank canvas for most any flavor and seasoning combination. I like it cold, I like it hot, with cucumber or apricot, in a bowl or on a plate, I think quinoa simply great!

Explore these fabulicious quinoa recipes and flirt with a lil quinoa sooner than later my friends! You won’t be sorry. You will be full and satisfied.
