I cooked quinoa (a very healthy grain) earlier this week for the first time. My husband has never had a good thing to say about quinoa, but liked this meal. One big hint I learned is to cook it in broth. This gives it so much more flavor. Otherwise it is very bland.
I found this Mango Quinoa Salad recipe at ourbestbites.com. I didn't think I'd make it any time soon, because quinoa is not cheap. In fact it is expensive. But when I saw that Lee's had red peppers and mangoes on sale, I couldn't resist. More information on quinoa can be found here.
