Due to the calling of eating well and eating healthy stuffs, I tried this quinoa which I bought from Jusco. Quinoa is known as a healthy whole-meal grains that provides a lot of benefits to the health.
In terms of taste - oh! not really tasty (healthy food isn't always tasty, huh?) but when you mix it with other stuffs, it is edible, trust me :).
Most importantly, get the good benefits!
This is how un-cooked quinoa looks like
Cooked quinoa...cooking method similar as cooking rice.
I made quinoa beans salad using my own recipe. Beans (mixed beans - you can buy a mixed beans packet from hypermarket store - Tesco, Mydin etc), is soaked overnight then boiled until soft. Then toss. Mix it with quinoa and iceberg salad, chopped onion and cherry tomato. Pour about 1/4 cup lime/lemon juice. Sprinkle some salt and black pepper. Mix well.
Another version of quinoa salad: Mix it with steamed carrot and broccoli.
Pour lime/lemon juice and sprinkle some salt.
