Greek Quinoa

What are you having for lunch?

Quinoa is surprisingly becoming my favorite go-to-grain, replacing both oatmeal and rice.  “I wonder if anyone has come up with a quinoa cookie?” *she thinks to herself.  With the invention of Pinterest, I’m sure I could probably find it their.  With nice alliteration too…  To prove my point, I just popped onto Pinterest, and alas, here it is!  There’s even a “no-bake” cookie recipe! I digress, mostly because you clicked on the link to Greek Quinoa.  So why am I talking about quinoa cookies?  Because it’s becoming my favorite go-to-grain, remember.  Stay with me!  My point is that I keep reaching for the quinoa when contemplating a new recipe.  And without further ado, Greek Quinoa:
