This is an interesting way of using Quinoa, a wonder grain that is thousands of years old. My wife resisted strongly when I introduced this grain into our household but now loves it. One of the nice things about it is that it cooks in 15 minutes from scratch so it is a time easy menu item. Make sure you rinse it well in water as it may be bitter. I have never experienced bitterness but that is what all the packages and websites say. I have made some changes to the recipe which I have noted in the recipe. Please make according to your own taste and diet restrictions. Jim in So. Calif.
