Searching for a dish that has just a little more of everything? Quick-cooking quinoa has you covered.
What Is It?
Often referred to as a “wonder food,” quinoa is a versatile and healthy addition to your table. It’s most often treated like a grain (in fact, it’s a seed), but, unlike grains or rice, it’s a complete protein, making it a smart choice for any meal.
Back to Basics
Cooked by itself, quinoa is just like rice, if rice had a toasty, nutty flavor and was even easier to make. Add in your favorite spices and seasonings for a super simple side.
Keep It Cold
Quinoa is perfect as a cold salad. Whether you’re using up last night’s leftovers or starting a salad from scratch, a quinoa salad is a no-brainer!
