Quinoa is a new, popular organic food. I first heard about it about two years ago. However, this is the first time I cooked quinoa. I cooked it with my vegetable broth. It turned out very delicious.
According to an article on quinoa in the Wikipedia, quinoa's protein content is very high (12%–18%). Unlike wheat or rice (which are low in lysine), and like oats, quinoa contains a balanced set of essential amino acids for humans, making it an unusually complete protein source among plant foods.
