Happy (early) Mother's Day! The Inca's were the first to recognize Quinoa's awesomeness in taste and nutrition, bestowing unto her the title of "Mother of all grains."
Biologists went for a more dry definition, classifying Mama Quinoa as a pseudocereal or pseudograin. Let's take this as a lesson: biology can't define a grain or a family.
This weekend, prepare a five-course quinoa feast for Mom! Here's a menu:
Appetizer: Quinoa Salad Stuff Grape Leaves
Soup: Ecuadorian-style Quinoa Soup
Salad: Toasted Quinoa Arugula Apple Salad
Entree: Thai Fried Quinoa
Dessert: Quinoa Brownies
Happy Mother's Day to our Kale Crusader Moms!
