Quinoa (pronounced Kin-wa) is an ancient grain that was a staple food of the ancient Incas of South America. This recipe is a cooked cereal somewhat like oatmeal, but even healthier! It is gluten-free and according to Bob's Red Mill (the brand of quinoa I used), is the most nutrious of all grains. The added flax meal is for boosting your omega-3s. I make this on the weekend, and then reheat a bowl in the microwave.
