I actually liked eating Quinoa!

Quinoa- pronounced keen-wah I believe. My mum and I went around saying it quinn-noah for the like a year because we didn''t know. So now in my mind I always think quinn-noah even though I say keen-wah. I am not sure why we were even talking about Quinoa because I haven't cooked it much at all. The times I have cooked it I haven't really liked it. This recipe I loved though. Yay quinoa! I adapted it from the 101 Cookbooks site
I cooked the quinoa in broth to give it more flavor and I used string beans instead of asparagus, because that's what I had and I used almonds instead of walnuts and eggs instead of potatoes! I also probably used more oil then she did and I toasted the almonds with some oil and a sprinkle of cayenne for a kick. I just love how it is arranged. You should check out the picture on that website, it's just lovely. There are also 28 other healthy gluten free recipes with great pictures.
