Remember when I asked you to Name This Food?

Tough one, I suppose, because this is not the form in which one usually sees it. It more often looks like this:


It is Quinoa!

Quinoa is a species of goosefoot (Chenopodium),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 beets, spinach, and tumbleweeds.

So what can we make with it?

Funny you should ask.

OK, so what's our new Name This Food! food?

Name it!
