One of my clients recently gave me this quinoa side dish recipe. Quinoa is a high protein seed that cooks up like a grain. Although I enjoy it alone, I prefer quinoa mixed with other grains or put together with vegetables as a side dish or warm salad.
I love it for it’s simplicity along with the fact that it is tasty – an excellent combination in my kitchen!
If you have great simple recipes you’d like to share, please send them my way!
