Quinoa, The Super Grain!

We have taste tested every gluten free pasta product on the market and hands down the winning pasta is Ancient Harvest Quinoa Pasta Shells. Quinoa pasta has a higher protein count than regular pasta.
What is Quinoa?
Quinoa stands alone as a complete protein grain and it's great for vegans and vegetarians to boost your protein intake. It supplies all the essential amino acids in a balanced protein.
I picked up a bag of the tiny grain, found where the dry beans are, at Whole Foods for $1.89. We only used one cup and we had enough for 4 servings. You cook it like rice and in 15 minutes it's done. Use it in place of rice or cous cous in your next recipe. It's good for you and it's such an interesting taste and texture. I predict it to become a staple in our house.
