I’ve been wanting to cook with quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) now for months. Ever since I’ve heard about this grain once called the “gold of the Inca’s”, and about the fact that this little complete protein that is chock full of nutrients, I knew I wanted to cook with it.
But is is tasty, I wondered?
The answer and proof lay in this soup I made the other night.
This soup is hearty and filling even though it contains no meat. The broth is savory and wonderful due to the mushrooms releasing their pungent juices. The quinoa fills you up before you know it and the health benefits of all the ingredients together is just an added plus.
You’ll never know you’re eating health food because it’s just that good!
