So quinoa (KEEN-wah), seems to be the new healthy hit of many recipes. I wanted to share some important tips that I include in instructions for preparing quinoa. You can use it in a wide range of dishes or as a main course.
Quinoa are seeds, while they are not grains. It's a protein that contains essential amino acids like lysine and good quantities of calcium, phosphorus, and iron 1.
Tip: You can saute quinoa with butter or oil prior to adding water for a pilaf favor.
