The Mother Grain

Ruth Reichl, former editor in chief of Gourmet tells us that Quinoa is the "mother grain of the Incas because it is loaded with essential amino acids as well as lot's of minerals and vitamins". Add to that the fact that it is so good and so ridiculously easy to make, it is a no brainer dish. Tonight I am going to make it with peppers, green onions, corn, lime juice, and a little olive oil. If you want, you can grill some pork chops, happy little carnivores will love that or instead, just throw some black beans in the salad for something a little different.
