Quite a surprise I am sure, but this grain makes me happy especially combined with fenel, apple, carrot in a salad.
Picture from here
Quinoa is an ancient food from South America. While it looks a bit like rice, it has a richer, heartier flavor and crunchier texture. It tastes like brown rice but I like that it is fluffy and somehow creamy.
Another recipe which I cook quite often is a quinoa risotto with zucchini and smoked salmon, a true delight!
Happy Easter everyone - I hope you will have days full of light!
