I am a self professed lover of quinoa (pronounced ki:nwa). This Peruvian grain is the powerhouse replacement for pasta or rice. Not only can it blend in beautifully with any sauce or flavor, it is packed full of protein, gluten-free and only takes 10-15 minutes to make. It comes in traditional white form, red and black. I encourage trying them all, but have created a recipe to start with the traditional white. This recipe is easy, crisp and delicious! Vegetarians feel free to replace chicken broth with vegetable and loose the shrimp as the meal would go just fine without an extra protein.
Enjoy, and remember it’s not ‘kah-no-ah’, it’s ‘ki:nwa’ and it’s what all the cool kids are doing.
