My hubby and I got curious about this "grain" and tried it to substitute for rice. We both are okay with the taste. But since I'm now a Bon Apetit convert, I need to classify my food to get the right components to make my meals balanced. Where do I classify Quinoa? Starch or vegetable? Pseudocereal-fake cereal? So veggie then? ;)
Btw, I only boil it like rice. Plain water, no additives whatsoever. :)
Accdg to Google:
Quinoa (/ˈkiːnwɑː/ or /kɨˈnoʊ.ə/, Spanish: quinua, from Quechua: kinwa), a species of goosefoot (Chenopodium), is a grain-like crop grown primarily for its edible seeds. It is a pseudocereal rather than a true cereal, or grain, as it is not a member of the true grass family. As a chenopod, quinoa is closely related to species such as beetroots, spinach and tumbleweeds.
