Quinoa, pronounced “Keen-wah”, is such an AMAZING “super grain”……although, it’s not a grain at all, it is an amino acid-rich (protein) seed. This gluten free seed, is a complete protein, containing all 9 essential amino acids that are required by the body as building blocks for muscles. It is also high in magnesium, fiber and a good source of manganese and copper. Quinoa cooks and tastes much like other grains, making it the perfect replacement for grains that are difficult to digest and for people following a gluten free diet.
Here is a recipe for a DELICIOUS and SIMPLE summer salad, sure to please even the pickiest of eaters!!
** Great as a meal on it’s own or as a side dish with grilled chicken.
