Quinoa from Cynthia Lair of Cookus Interruptus

Pronounced "keen-wah", this grain (actually a seed) originated in the Andes Mountains in South America where it was once a staple food for the Incas. It has a delicious light, nutty flavor. When it cooks the grain opens up to make tiny spirals.  Quinoa contains all 8 amino acids and therefore has better protein value than most grains. A nutrient-dense grain; perfect for those who have elevated needs, such as pregnant or nursing mothers.
