Quinoa is a grain crop that is grown for its edible seeds. It is basically a seed and isn't technically a cereal grain. In other words it is a pseudo-cereal, which is prepared and eaten similarly to a grain.

In cooked quinoa you can find protein, fiber, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, folate, copper, iron, zinc, potassium, B1, B2, B6, B3 and vitamin E.

That breakdown in itself should be enough for you to go out and get you some of this amazing seed to try this recipe.


2 cups Quinoa

4 cups Water

1 med Sweet Pepper chopped

1 small Carrot grated

1 clove Garlic grated

1 Pimento chopped

2 tbsp Water
