I used to think that Quinoa was a weird food for out-there hippie people. I also used to think that it was spelled Kinwah. Which I still think makes more sense. But I must admit that I’m starting to like the grain a little bit more. Before you picture me swathed in tie-dye, please understand that this is simply because 90 second microwave Quinoa has come into my life.
It’s made by Seeds of Change Foods, and I think I am completely and utterly their target market. It is perfectly seasoned, and without having to soak anything from the Bolivian Altiplano for hours, I get to satisfy my hippie side AND I get to consume a Supergrain. Fancy! Plus, Maxim and Milan love it, although Mia has complained about having “that” rice with the weird things in it again. But she doesn’t like any rice, so she doesn’t count! Hah. And, it’s certified organic, which helps my cause of wanting to feed my family more organic goods. Yay me! Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some chanting and an African dance class to attend to.
