Quick and Gluten-Free Quinoa Dinner Recipes
Quinoa rates so highly as a super-food that the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations named 2013 the “International Year of Quinoa.” Quinoa isn’t actually a grain at all, but a seed that hails from South America. The Incas called it the “mother seed” and rightfully treated this super-food as sacred. The gluten-free seed provides all the essential amino acids in adequate ratios, making it almost equivalent to milk in terms of its protein quality. One cooked cup contains 8 grams of protein that both meat-eaters and vegans can enjoy.
