Have you ever tried quinoa? Apparently it is a "super food", more nutritious than any other grain. I saw a couple of recipes featuring it, so I decided to try one of them but I could not find quinoa anywhere in my grocery store. I still made the mexican quinoa salad recipe but substituted white rice for quinoa. It was delicious, but after hearing my sister rave about quinoa yesterday, I really want to try the real thing. Wish me luck!


  1. Quinoa is so good! It's really good for you, yes, but it also has an amazing flavor. I got my quinoa at Costco, but I know Whole Foods has it, too.

  2. oh my gosh i love this stuff!! when i had to be on a candida diet and then when i did a cleanse it was one of the only, no i think the only grain i could have!! so worth it and so good!! you can get it organic at costco by the way!!

  3. Thanks for the yummy recipe, I made it last night it was sooooooooo good! I have an extra bag of costco quinoa, come visit and it is yours! I have a way good recipe too, with dried cranberries, walnuts, lentils, green onions, sliced pears and raspberry vinaigrette.

  4. i want camilla's recipe - is it with quinoa?

  5. I am so glad you like the recipe and I really hope you try it with quinoa- it has a fun texture and is incredibly healthy. ENJOY!
