I cooked some quinoa to have under broccoli beef stir fry. It is good. I was surprised at how much like rice it is. The texture is a little different. The taste is a little different, but I really enjoyed it. Sadly, it's not any lower in calories than rice. emoticon Variety is always good.

    I actually WON a prize pack from Alter Eco some time back, and it included "royal red quinoa" in it. So, it was my first time trying it also. You're right, it's a lot like rice, only small and round. Mine even kinda sprouted a bit when it cooked. Is the protein in it higher than rice? How was your stir-fry?

    I've never eaten quinoa and had wondered how it tasted. It looks so much like rice.
Thanks for sharing with us!
