My father got me into making some delicious and healthy dishes with this great food.

What else do we know about this aside that it's healthy for you?

Thanks folks smile

It is a good item to consume if you have IBS. It is a low FODMAP approved food!

Why did you capitalize all of the letters in the thread title? Why is the thread title only one word? Why don't you put a little more effort into labeling the threads that you make? This isn't the first time.

I like this stuff and it's very trendy now as an "ancient grain".
The first time I ordered it at a Panera, the dorky little clerk tried to shame me by repeating my order very loudly as keen-wa after I pronounced it kee-no-uh. I rolled my eyes and looked over at my daughter and she immediately told the clerk the correct Spanish pronunciation is kee-no-uh...I think he was trying to impress her (she is a willowy blonde) and it seemed like the cat got his tongue at that point.

We get this stuff from Costco. You just microwave it right in the pouch for 90 seconds. Makes a great side dish that goes with just about anything.

I like quinoa but its overpriced. I cant stand couscous. Try to find barley and other less known grains, cheaper and as nutritious if not moreso.

It's actually not a grain....but a seed. It's plant-based, gluten-free, and one of the few that is a complete protein with all the essential amino acids. Pretty high in protein, vitamins and minerals. Essentially a complete food all by itself.

Quinoa

I dumped "nutritionally challenged" boxed pasta years ago and replaced it with quinoa. Tomato sauce and hard romano/parmesan cheese becomes an Italian dinner. Getting rid of dead/processed grains, breads and cereals is a healthy idea. Quinoa helps to fill those calorie gaps though in a more healthful way. I often make a salad with quinoa and beans, an egg, and all the veggies you can toss in. Sometimes I'll heat the quinoa and beans, add garlic and onions, tomato sauce, avocado, apple cider vinegar, oregano, and have a nice creamy and spicy dish. We'll make up enough quinoa for a week and add to meals or make it a meal. Quinoa and beans is a good meat free meal to give your gut a break. My local supermarket sells it for $3.19/lb for organic. Even if more expensive than pasta it's a "real" food that won't contribute to diabetes and heart disease like "dead" pastas do. It's not easy to find a meatless meal that is packed with nutrition, proper protein, etc....and actually good for you.

Thank You for that. Those ideas I will certainly try also smile

In my supermarket it's with the other grains, nuts, seeds in vertical bins. The health food stores have it the same way. The big box stores will often sell it in 2 lb bags for $8-$10 each. You could order it on line too. Not a fan of paying $5/lb.....but as long as my local store is around $3/lb, I'm in.

Once you add tomato sauce and apple cider vinegar and EVOO + garlic/onions for a kick, it tastes darn good, and feels no different to me than chewing soft spaghetti. I find that apple cider vinegar helps to jack up the taste on so many otherwise bland foods. I add it to salads, tomato sauce, scrambled eggs, taco's, soups, etc. A few tablespoons tossed in with anything that is a bit too low on protein brings it right up. Most canned soups are pretty lousy on the nutrition scale. Toss in extra quinoa and beans, garlic and onions, ACV, maybe a couple broccoli stalks, and now you're talking. Quinoa doesn't look all that much different than round white rice....but the nutrition differences are night and day.
