This power house of a food has been consumed since 3-4 thousand years ago. This was a main staple of the Inca peoples, whom discovered it was edible. They believe it increased the vigor and stamina of their warriors.
This is not a grain but a seed, it is easy to cook and can adapt to many flavors from savory to sweet. When I am making Quinoa, I make a double batch to use the extra later, in salads or as a morning warm cereal as you would use oatmeal.
I’d like to give you some reasons why you should also add Quinoa into your weekly diet.
