Q is for Quinoa

Well, I'm still working my way through the alphabet in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, and Friday was the letter 'Q'.  I decided to use quinoa for the letter 'q', but I admit that I've never tried this grain.  From the Wikipedia entry, I learned that it's not exactly a grain, but it's considered a pseudocereal.  I hear that it's supposed to be good for you.  Maybe I'll add it to my diet.

How do you use quinoa?

i love quinoa. Use it like rice. It cooks up very much like rise. It's a fairly mild grain, so I cook it in chicken stock in stead of water. When it's done, but still warm, stir in raisins, slivered almonds, peas, anything you like. It's full of protein. :-)
