Quinoa – pronounced (Keen) -(wah)
Pardon me but would you like to quinoa? Sounds like a ballroom, Dancing with the Stars, tricky dance technique to me. Right?
So what is this quinoa I hear people bragging about? I did some digging and investigation and the boring version is this…it’s a grain crop grown primarily known for its edible seeds. In the foodie world, it’s mostly tied to pseudocereals and rice. This grainy and sometimes tasty side dish contains essential amino acids like lysine and acceptable quantities of calcium, phosphorus, and iron. It is a gluten free food and considered to be a protein packed a snack.
