Quinoa is really good for you, the first time I had Quinoa was when we visited our daughter and son in Florida. I had some type of Middle Eastern dish and it was delicious. I then decided to make some at home and now Quinoa is a staple in my pantry. I am not a vegan, nor is anyone in the house but I saw this recipe thought it sounded pretty good. This is another on my list to make!
