What is Quinoa?

QUINOA "keen-wah"

 What is it? It's an amazing food that many people don't even know about. It looks and tastes like a grain, but it is a seed that more closely resembles spinach in it's make up. It is the ONLY seed that is a complete protein because it has ALL 9 essential amino acids. In other words, it's a power house of nutrients! I put this tiny grain into soups for an added protein boost.

Tip: Make sure to rinse them in a fine mesh strainer before cooking.
