Quinoa: Hey That
stuff is pretty good.
I'm always suspicious of something touted as a health food, but this actually tastes good, cooks in a standard rice cooker, and has some impressive nutritional numbers. Other than learning to say the name right, it's a no-brainer.
It has a more interesting flavor than rice, and is really good the next day for breakfast with butter, milk, brown sugar, raisins, and a tablespoon of maple syrup. Sits well on my stomach (especially after that Indian food last night).
More expensive than rice, Costco has it for 4 lbs for $7. This is Bolivian grown at 12,000 ft, imported in bulk to California, cleaned and packaged there.
