Quinoa is kind of a in-vogue food right now (think of it as the new kale, only not absolutely disgusting.) It’s termed a “super-food” and is the easiest grain to digest.
I didn’t dig quinoa too much until Kristina started cooking it this year. Look for a upcoming recipe on butternut squash and quinoa dish which will dispel your doubts. But for now, next time you go to make a burrito or a burrito bowl, sub in quinoa with a splash of lime juice and a spattering of cilantro for the typical rice ingredient. You won’t regret it.
Here to explain cooking quinoa better than I ever could is this cook on YouTube. I love when I can find healthy cooking tips on YouTube… I learn much better visually.
