Description 

The fascinating grain Quinoa,(Chenopodium Qquinoa), native to the Western Hemisphere, was a staple food of the Inca and has been grown in the Andes for centuries. In fact, the Quechua name for Quinoa translates as "The Mother Grain". The United Nations World Health Organization observes that Quinoa is closer to the ideal protein balance than any other grain. It's equal to milk in protein and is high in Vitamins B & E, Iron, Zinc, Potassium, Calcium and essential Amino Acids.

Quinoa has become popular in the U.S. due to its interesting texture, great peanut like flavor and nutritional superiority. When cooked, the thin germ circlet falls from the seed and remains crunchy while the grain, pearly and translucent, melts in your mouth. Quinoa's mild flavor makes it an excellent substitute for Couscous or Bulghur in many dishes.

Suggested Use:
The versatility of Quinoa allows it to be served alone as a side-dish or as part of a main entree.

Ingredients:
Quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa)



Basic Prep:
Bring 2 cups water or stock to a boil. Add 1 cup of quinoa, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 15 minutes. The grain will pop and the outside germ will separate into a curly tail. One cup dry yields 2 cups cooked.

Recipes

Cream of Chanterelle and Quinoa Soup
Quinoa, a delicate grain originally grown in the Andes, is now also grown in Colorado and New Mexico. It is light and easy to digest and is higher in protein than most other grains. It has a noticeably bitter edge if not rinsed very well.
The mushrooms lend their lovely, woodsy flavor to this light, delicious, protein-filled soup.

Mushroom and Pea Quinoa Risotto
This is a wonderful dish for any season, and is an elegant accompaniment for any hearty meal. It can also hold its own as the main course for a vegetarian dinner, and goes marvelously with tossed greens. To add a touch of the exotic, more than a touch of "mystery," and a fabulously delicious flavor, serve with a simple salad, tossing the greens with vinegar and tasty roasted pumpkin seed oil.
