    Red quinoa is supposed to be even better. Try toasting your quinoa before adding liquid. Also, quinoa is already a proteinso you do not need to add any meat to get protein.

    It's ok, I honestly don't understand America's fascination with this Kweeno stuff though. The flavors are nice, I'm just not crazy bout the texture. I'll find recipes to use up the remainder of the bag,and then forget all about this stuff.
