  1. Thanks for the recipe. It sounds great. Have to go buy some Quinoa. Looks east and quick too. Thanks again.

    1. So great to hear you will be picking some up. Some tips for buying quinoa are it is more affordable in the bulk section then getting it in the box variation. It is so high in protein and low in fat. A wonderful South American Grain. Super quick and easy. Take water to a boil and add in quinoa bring to a boil again and reduce to a simmer for 15 minutes covered and your done. 1 cup of quinoa to 2 cups of water. Enjoy and thanks for the visit!

  2. Loved this recipe. Yum is all I can say!
