In my new quest to find alternatives to rice i found quinoa!!! listen guys i know it’s not news and all but i have been living ignorantly because i refuse to give up rice completely plus the fact that the price of quinoa is kinda high there compared to rice. And i refused believe when people say quinoa is kinda like rice. I majorly just be like are these people crazy?? Rice is bae and goes with fish sauce, stew not forgetting jollof rice etc but you can’t do that with quinoa now can you?
Yesterday i had a friend invite me over to her house and she told me she had quinoa and chicken in her kitchen. she asked that we make something tangible from these, since i’m not a rude person i replied- yea sure but i have never had quinoa and i hope you don’t mind but i already think i won’t enjoy this lunch. Long story short she made me cook it since am the better ‘cook’. We both had quinoa made from fresh chicken broth and tomatoes sauce with roasted chicken. I have to say it was not actually what i expected, it tasted really good.
Now, knowing that quinoa tastes almost as good as rice plus the great nutritional content like high protein,fiber and antioxidant. i will have it incorporated in my weekly meal even though i must admit 100percent it’s not quite like rice.(am Nigerian) hence the stupid love for rice. Lets not forget it’s also pricey but am willing to try more quinoa. Anything for a healthier me am up for it and i want you to share in this too.Do let me know how you eat your quinoa and recipes please!!
