Quinoa is new ingredient for me. My friend recommended to eat it for its richness of protein, but I didn’t know what I can cook and what kind of taste they have. He said I can substitute rice with quinoa, and sure they are, the grain’s natural sweetness and way of cooking is very similar to rice.
When I cooked quinoa salad for the first time, I had sensational moment for its deliciousness. It had sweet taste from quinoa and beans, and freshness from veggies and herbal, refreshing aroma from parsley. And after finish eating, it gave the important lesson of :
- Always bring a small mirror so that you can check something isn’t playing hide and seek inside of your mouth.
- Always bring toothbrush so that you can prevent awkward moment when your friend/colleague/boss found something is still on your mouth.
Cooking with something new ingredients always gives you joy and takes you to the new world of taste, so try it if you haven’t tried cooking quinoa salad 🙂
