Quinoa with vegetables

Barley used to be my favorite grain – until I discovered quinoa. Quinoa is a South American grain, once a staple of the Incas, rich in protein and minerals. The Incas referred to it as the “mother grain”. It is quite small and light, and has a very pleasant texture. You can find it most health food stores. So far in my life, everyone for whom I have made this dish had never had quinoa before, and everyone enjoyed it very much. Enjoy.
