In need of a healthy grain at dinnertime? Consider quinoa! Pronounced KEEN-wah, this delightful side is packed with about 8 grams of protein per cooked cup and is gluten free. For someone living with diabetes, or anyone looking for a healthy dish, this is a great substitute to white rice, and it's just as easy to cook, especially if you’re conscious of the glycemic index in your food.
Try it plain or add your favorite seasonings and herbs. We like lime juice and cilantro! How do you cook your quinoa?
