Not only do I think quinoa tastes GREAT, it’s considered a superfood – meaning it’s exceptionally healthy and good for you. Many people use it as a substitute for white rice, and the great thing is that it’s much healthier than regular white rice: it has much fewer calories and carbohydrates than rice, with much more fiber and protein. All good things! It also pairs exceptionally well with a lot of dishes, and can be right at home in a variety of meals – such as this salad! Everyone on-board the quinoa train now??
