Tried Quinoa for first time

Friday, May 25, 2012

I'm trying to expand my pantry with healthy foods and read about Quinoa. I made some last night with grilled pesto chicken breasts and it was good. I found it kind of bland all by itself so next time I think I'll add onion and garlic or carrots. I think a Morroccan spice would be good too. I'll have to research more recipes but I'm glad I have another healthy side dish or weekday lunch idea.

    I haven't tried this yet. But I would like to.

    I use a lot of brown rice, and still working on spices to spark it up a tad.

    Keep posting about it,,,,,,,,,,,,,I'm interested. lol

    Do you have a favorite way to prepare it?

    I love it. It kind of smells like asparagus while cooking and I was very surprised to find that it kind of tastes like a combination of a vegetable and a starch. I was also shocked to find out how light it tastes and feels. I put the left overs into my salad for a little variety.
