Quinoa, a “grain” high in protein, amino acids, antioxidants.
I’ve eaten white quinoa before, but never cooked with it. I wanted to make a quinoa salad, and came across red quinoa at the store. Until then, I had only heard of white quinoa, but after doing some research I found out there is a red and black quinoa too. I think the red quinoa is more earthier/nuttier/stronger tasting than the white quinoa. I decided to give the red quinoa a whirl, and I liked the outcome but I’m still not sure which one I like more.
