Expert Tips

  • Did You Know?: Quinoa is a popular grain in South American cuisine and is gaining popularity in Canada and the United States. Its nutrition profile is impressive because it is a complete protein.
  • Substitution: Cooking grains in chicken broth or vegetable broth adds to the overall flavour of the dish. You can also cook the quinoa in 2 cups (500 mL) water with 1/2 teaspoon (2 mL) salt.
  • Serve-With : Serve a scoop of this savoury salad on a lettuce leaf with a slice of crusty French bread.
