"Quinoa (play /ˈkiːnwɑː/ or /kɨˈnoʊ.ə/, Spanish: quinua, from Quechua: kinwa), a species of goosefoot (Chenopodium), is a grain-like crop grown primarily for its edible seeds. It is a pseudocereal rather than a true cereal, or grain, as it is not a member of the grass family. As a chenopod, quinoa is closely related to species such as beets, spinach, and tumbleweeds."
It may not sound delicious but it is great for you and super tasty and versitile too! YUM!
The Quinoa cakes are my favorite new easy dinner!
If you have any Quinoa recipes to share I would love some new ideas!
