Keenwah… I mean Quinoa…

Quinoa– no matter how you say it (keenwah… keenwah…), it remains an excellent food option.  I hadn’t tried quinoa until fairly recently- maybe a year ago.  It’s fairly tasty when made with broth and some herbs of your choosing.  Due to its complete nutritive nature, you could use it as a main dish, but I’ve had it more often as a side dish.  Definitely make sure to wash off the natural saponins (the water will run clear through the quinoa), or it may not be as tasty as you were hoping.
