As quinoa cooks, the external germ forms a tiny crescent-shaped tail, similar to a bean sprout. Although the grain itself is soft and creamy, the tail is crunchy, providing a unique texture to complement quinoa’s delicate flavor. Here, we’ve added simple vegetables and a mild curry spice. Serve it cold or at room temperature as a salad, or warm as a side dish.
