I’m just gonna come right out and say it…
Which is expected since people who talk about quinoa usually fit into one of three categories:
[One of those is false.]
I’m in the fourth category:
I love quinoa not because it contains a ton of complex carbohydrates, or because it’s a formidable intestinal pipe cleaner, but because it’s super easy to cook in bulk and makes a great base for other dishes. [Translation: I’m lazy.]
I make a batch on Sundays and add it to dishes throughout the week.
For breakfast, I fry some quinoa in a little butter/olive oil, mix in some browned greens, and throw a few fried eggs on top.
For lunch, I’ll top it with pan-fried salmon, blanched leeks, and beurre blanc.
For dinner, I’ll eat a steak and just stare at the quinoa [a man can only take so much fiber].
