Well, my husband wants to lose 20 pounds and the nutritionist at Kaiser says he should eat quinoa - I guess for a carb it is very nutritious. Neither of us has eaten it before and I have no idea what to do with it. Looks like millet - only a little larger.
Do you have any good recipes for making it into something delicious? Actually, I am starting at square one. With an unknown grain my tendency is to just boil it in a lot of water until it's tender and then drain it in a colander. Just looking at this in the raw state without having tasted it I'm assuming I would use quinoa in any recipe as if it was cooked rice. Perhaps chopped stir fried veg. and chicken over it, or mix it with chopped cooked broccoli and melted cheese? Do you think I could use my rice cooker to cook it? It's a basic model with no fancy settings - just on & off.
