I. LOVE. QUINOA.

Today I threw together a bunch of slop, and it was delicious.

I cooked 1 cup of quinoa in 2 cups of water using my rice cooker. In the meantime, I heated together a can of black beans and a can of collard greens on the stove. I added them together with the quinoa and proceeded to eat 3 bowls of it. Oh yeah, and I added a generous amount of cholula. I don't think I'll ever eat rice and beans. From now on, it's quinoa and beans.

No picture because it looked disgusting.

Quinoa...the only indigenous American grain! I love it...Try this recipe...sauté garlic and onion and chopped carrot, add chopped red and green pepper, add quinoa, add chick peas...paprika, cayenne, and salt to taste...its delicious!

I agree - I totally love quinoa. It's so versatile; I really like it with Indian food (like with Tasty Bites), and in taco salad.
