I have been seeing the grain quinoa being used in a lot of recipes lately. It is touted as a good substitute for rice, pasta, etc. and is supposed to be more healthy for you. In my shopping for groceries, I had picked up 2 bags of it. I have never used quinoa before.
We had just returned from our trip to California, there were not many groceries in the house, and I needed to fix dinner for us.
So, I whipped up a quick chicken stir-fry for our meal.
Strips of chicken breast sauteed with cut up onion and peppers, seasoned with a chicken soup base mix. There was no rice in the house, so I decided to use some of the quinoa in place of the rice I usually use.
It was a mistake-neither of us liked it at all-in fact, we hated it. It ruined a perfectly delicious chicken stir-fry for us. So I will not be cooking quinoa again!
The opened bag will cooked up, and given to the chickens-I am sure they will relish it….cooked food is their favorite.
The un-opened bag I will give to who ever wants it!
