Definition: Quinoa

Quinoa, pronounced keen-wah
A grain staple of the ancient Incas known today for its high protein content. Ivory in color and tiny and bead shaped, quinoa looks like rice. When cooked, it expands to four times its uncooked size. With a mild, bland flavor, it is easily comparable to couscous. Available in most supermarkets as a grain, flour, or pasta.
