Tell me about Quinoa

atwistedlime | | Dec 2, 2008 03:49 PM

I have been a lurker for a bit and finally decided I needed to post because I am at a loss.

What is Quinoa and what would you use it for? I have read that it is a seed that can be substituted for pasta or rice but I am unfamiliar with the product and where to find it. I am in the Pacific Northwest so my first stop will likely be Trader Joes or Whole Foods but would love to hear if it is available more generally and cheaper.

Let me know your thoughts and opinions and even recipes for this product.

Thanks!
Leslie
