Convenience makes the difference
We urge you to try substituting quinoa for carb-loaded rice, potatoes, or bread. We picked up a (5.46 oz) packet of ready-in-minutes Roland brand quinoa on a recent supermarket run. It's not cheap. We paid just under $3.50 for a packet, but it is healthy. This food item comes in several distinct and appetizing flavors, such as Mediterranean, black bean, lemon curry, and roasted garlic. It reminds us of the trick we used where we cooked quinoa with dry soup mix. The cooking process takes only 15 – 20 minutes. Just add water and simmer on low in a saucepan on the stove top. Each packet makes enough for three servings of this wholegrain.
