My bff loves quinoa and when we trade our weekly menus, I always feel like I should be making quinoa. According to her (and other people in the know), it's super healthy and has a ton of protein.... why wouldn't I make it?
Because I was scared.
There's rinsing involved, it's $6.99 a bag.... I don't know how to cook it. But it's healthy. And meatless (meat is expensive). So I tried this recipe on Wednesday night. I subbed out one can of beans for a can of Rotel.
The quinoa has a sweet, but nutty, flavor and has the texture of firm cous-cous. I handed my husband his dinner and three bites in, he says "Huh... this is really good". Victory, again.
I'm going to add this in to my weekly rotation.... now I just need some new recipes - what else can you put with quinoa?
