The Chef and The Dietitian - Episode 18...QUINOA!

Quinoa is an ancient grain that's actually a seed and considered the "gold of the Incas". Filled to the brim with amino acids (all 9 essential amino acids are represented making it a complete protein), fiber, and phytonutrients, quinoa is indeed a supergrain! Not to mention how delicious it tastes and how versatile it is.

Also, we discovered a new company called Dragunara that makes delicious, salt-free, oil-free, and sugar-free seasonings. We use their "Slim Spice Seasoning" in this episode.

Watch Chef AJ and myself as we show you how to make a simple and sassy side dish in this episode of The Chef and the Dietitian:

I made this the night I saw the video. You two remind me of myself. Kooky and loving great vegan food. I did not get to the nutritional yeast part, but I have no mastered my quinoa. I never thought to use my rice cooker...who knew?!?!

A friend makes granola out of uncooked quinoa and I've always wondered if the nutritional benefits are the same if it hasn't been cooked or if it goes right through as it were.
