Quinoa is an ancient, protein and vitamin rich staple food. While strictly speaking it is a seed, quinoa is eaten as a grain. It has an exceptional amino acid profile and, along with its cousin amaranth, has the highest protein content of all grains. Quinoa can be eaten as a cereal, side dish, salad, or used in baked goods.
A World of Ways to Cook with Quinoa offers some of my favorite whole foods and "new" macrobiotic recipes for cooking with this glorious grain.
