First of all, what IS quinoa? It is pronounced KEEN-WAH in case you're unfamiliar with the word. I had to look it up and apparently it's an annual flowering plant grown for its edible seeds and is related to beetroot and spinach. My first introduction to it was through my daughter who suggested I try a particular salad that she likes. My first reaction to this was from Dr. Seuss's book "I Don't Like Green Eggs and Ham!" However, it actually tasted quite good! These are quinoa seeds:
Mediterranean Quinoa Salad
Lemon Cilantro Chickpea Quinoa Salad
Chickpea Kale Quinoa Salad
Go on - give it a try! Don't be like me and think "I don't like green eggs and ham!" You never know! You just might like it - like I did.
