    Quinoa is a very small pearl like grain. It's higher in protein than a lot of grains.

  • Followed your recipe as best I could, was missing two ingredients, but it still came out delicious. Mine was a bit heavy on the black beans,. The dressing was wonderful against the sweetness of the corn.
    I think I can even get my youngest to eat quinoa this way, Thanks! - 6/20/10
