    Anyone had quinoa??

    Random thread alert...

    This stuff is weird, but good. Pronounced "keen-wa", it's a grain that looks kind of like birdseed. It cooks up kind of like rice or couscous. It gives out this weird spirally, comma-shaped thread when it's done.

    I'm no health nut, but this is supposed to be good for you, too.

    Just wondering if anyone else has unlocked its mysteries...

    Cafe Shi, in Ames, has a Quinoa chicken salad on the menu that I've seen, but never ordered. Might have to check it out sometime.

    My wife has made it a couple of times for breakfast. It actually tastes pretty good.

    Had some for dinner. Its pretty bland, but the point is its supposedly healthy and you can spice it up anyway you want.

    Yeah, that's the key. I throw some tomatoes, onions, mushrooms, and any combination of spices you like in there...curry, cumin, cracked pepper, cayenne, etc.

    I have had it a lot for breakfast. Add a little cream and real maple syrup, yummy! I like steel cut oats as well.

    I bought a big ol' bag at Costco for 6-7 bucks, IIRC.

    Never tried it as a breakfast cereal, but it would be hard to beat steel cut oats...that's one of our family's favorites.

    Re: Anyone had quinoa??

    Quinoa is pretty good...just make sure you rinse it first to remove the bitter taste. It will taste like whatever you put it with. We like to cook it with orange juice and serve it under salmon.

    The kind we buy comes prewashed, which is nice.

    Nice idea with the salmon...I might have to try that.
