Now some brief info for those of you who have never heard of quinoa or those of you who have but don't really know what it is. (First - pronunciation - Keen-Wah) Quinoa is a seed that originated in South America (mainly the Andes region). It is a power house and contains antioxidants, amino acids and protein. While quinoa is typically bunched in with grains, it is actually a relative of the spinach families. (Although tastes nothing like spinach! Side note - you can actually eat quinoa greens, but availability is limited.) The flavor of quinoa is actually quite bland but there are so many combinations of spices that can enhance the seeds.
