Keen WAH!

[ #23635 ]

I woke up this morning with a craving for a big bowl of Quiona. What you say?? Why its the South American Supergrain! except its not a grain. Protein, iron, calcium... like eating a glass of milk. Cooks like rice but firm and just a little snappy (I don't usually toast it) with a bit of a nutty flavor. I'll often splash a little soy and chili sauce on it and eat it straight.

Find it in the commie-hippie-traitor section of your local supermarket!

  • You typoed it !

    I love this. Most of my friends don't even know the name. I usually cook it pilaf [wikipedia.org] -- fry the grains in olive oil with onions and spices, and add water after 1-2 mins. I sometimes break an egg or two in the grains when they're cooked. (And maybe should you try millet too.)

  • That Quinoa is the Colorado State Supergrain [usda.gov]!. Or at least it was in the eyes of the US Patent office until the "Inventors" let their claim expire under international pressure.

    I'm off to listen to John Fogerty infringe on Fantasy, Inc.'s copyright because he sounds too much like that guy from Credence.
