quinoa?

I was recently served a side dish that was catered in, and i have no idea what it was!

It was some kind of grain, small and round, served at room temp, and mixed with some chick peas, dried crabberries, and an oil based dressing with possibly middle eastern type spices (i couldnt quite put my finger on some of the flavors - but the grain itself didnt seem to have much taste)....

I was looking at some pictures of grains online to figure out what this is (I'm back in diet mode, and always want to know what it is that im eating), and I'm thinking maybe this was quinoa.

What else could it have been? If that is what it was, then where do I buy this and how do I cook it? It seems like it would be a fun thing to play around with for some summer dishes. Thanks!
