EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Chia seed is a delicious addition to this recipe. It thickens the yogurt mixture and adds a nice crunch.

Quinoa (KEEN-wah) has the highest protein content of all the grains. Its flavor is mild, like that of rice or couscous. Rinse the grain before cooking to remove any lingering traces of its bitter-tasting coating.

To toast almonds or pecans, sprinkle in ungreased heavy skillet. Cook over medium-low heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown.
