EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Quinoa is a nutritional powerhouse! It has a terrific balance of amino acids, and it is high in fiber, iron, phosphorus and magnesium. To top it off, it is one of the fastest-cooking whole grains.

If quinoa isn’t available, use 3 cups cooked couscous, preferably whole wheat, instead.
