1/7 Photos of Latin Quinoa
Quinoa is a delicately flavored grain that was a staple in the ancient Incas' diet and is available in most natural-food stores and the natural-food section of most supermarkets. It can be bought pre-packaged or in bulk. Toasting the grain before cooking enhances the flavor and rinsing removes the bitter protective coating. Unlike wheat or rice (which are low in lysine), quinoa contains a balanced set of essential amino acids for humans, making it an unusually complete protein source. This is my adjusted version of a recipe I found on EatingWell.com, from December 2005. It's a healthy, low-fat vegetarian dish with a nice mix of spice, textures, and flavors. Hot it up with some red pepper flakes if you prefer!
