I Finally Tried Quinoa

Not my cup o' tea

Not my cup o’ tea

Quinoa has been trendy for several years. Proponents tout its relatively high protein and fiber content. My daughter wanted to try it, so we cooked some together. She chose Giada De Laurentiis’ Herbed Quinoa recipe.

It was just OK. I doubt quinoa will ever be in my top 20 favorite recipes. If I run across it in a restaurant, I’ll try it one more time.

PS: Even if you don’t know how to pronounce quinoa, you’ll have no trouble with 99.9% of the words in my books.
