Organic Quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa)
Makes a wonderful side dish as a change from potatoes or rice. Cook it up then add a tsp of oil to a pan, add fresh garlic and onion. Once onion is carmelized, very quickly add quinoa long enough to reheat it. To die for. I also make my own soups and occassionally find I have to much broth. Adding a couple of spoonfuls of quinoa is a great way to thicken it up.
