Food Facts

Quinoa was a staple grain of the ancient Incas. Quinoa is a complete protein, containing all of the essential amino acids. It should be rinsed thoroughly before cooking to remove any powdery residue of saponin, the bitter, resinous coating that protects its seeds. To cook quinoa, combine 2 cups water and 2/3 cup quinoa in medium saucepan. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 10 min. or until the grains are translucent and the germ ring is visible on each grain. Makes about 2 cups.

    The eggs make this a quiche-like dish. We ate the leftovers for a quick breakfast.
