Expert Tips

  • Quinoa is high in protein, low in fat and cooks quickly, making it a terrific dinner choice. As is, this recipe works well as a grain side dish; to make it a main dish, double the serving size.
  • Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
