has anybody tried quinoa. it is called the king of grains. cook like rice 2 to 1 ratio, rinse really first in strainer. then 2 part chicken bouillion 1 part quinoa. tons of protein really easy to digest. whole food carries organic. I make quinoa patties with grated beets, carrots, squash,onion, garlic flour and baking powder mix with eggs 1 to 3 depends on amount of patties, 1 cup cooked quinoa thne form patties bake 10 to 20 minutes on each side. super healthy. I make yogurt dip with plain yogurt lemon juice and fresh dill. also lemon zest in flour and beet mix

I love quinoa. It's the best. I don't follow the SCD, but when I was reading up on the diet itself, the way she described made me feel like I might as well drink motor oil as eat the quiona. She said it was too startchy I believe. Have I been avoiding it for no good reason?

Also, Amazon has the brand that my Whole Foods carries for much cheaper. It was crazy though how they price fixed it back when I ate it. It would bounce between 34 and 68 dollars for 6 boxes, sometimes back and forth in one day. I did an RSS feed so I'd get an email with each price change.

I use it fairly often - I really like it, and my fairly picky hubby even likes it! Now I usually take it to potlucks and meals at people's homes as a side dish just to get other people to try it =)

I can find it at my local Kroger and it's not pricey at all, thankfully.

Ya, but I just cook it very plainly. It isn't very expensive, or not that I noticed, here. I just tried it because I was tired of cooking the same old, same old. Everyone ate it, so I throw it into the dinner mix once in a while.
