Quinoa

(Pronounced keen-wah) comes from the South American Andes and was regarded as the ‘mother grain’ by the native Incas. Unlike wheat or rice, it is a complete protein, containing all of the essential amino acids. Use it like rice in pilafs and stuffings, or even as porridge. When cooked, it swells to four times its original size, becoming almost transparent as the ‘germ’ separates from the seed.
