Yesterday I downloaded a Kindle book called Quinoa Recipes – 170 Delicious Recipes and perused it for some new recipes for my board. It’s available for $.99 today on Amazon for download.
I decided to try “Savory Quinoa”. Everyone loved it so I will share it with you.

Often referred to as the supergrain, quinoa (KEEN-wah) is high in fiber and high-quality protein. In fact, it contains more protein than any other grain while also packing in iron and potassium. One half cup of quinoa has 14 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber. This superfood is classified as a whole grain and is naturally gluten-free. Quinoa is a tiny grain that cooks up like rice and has a mild, nutty flavor and a light, fluffy texture similar to couscous. You can find it next to other grains in health-food stores and your supermarket. (from myrecipes.com)
