Question by LoveCheeseHateJello: What is quinoa and what section of the qrocery store can I find it?
I have two recipes I want to try. One calls for 1/4 cup quinoa and the other for 1/4 cup cooked quinoa. I’ve never heard of this before.
Answer by addicted2sim
Quinoa is a seed that is sometimes sold as a grain. It cooks exactly the same way as regular rice. It has a really nice nutty flavor. Quinoa is unique because it is one of only a few vegetable sources of all 8 amino acids, making it a powerhouse of nutrition. You can usually find it in the natural foods section by the rice and couscous stuff, or sometimes in the bulk foods section.
