Are you keen on quinoa? It's everywhere these days: in salads, soups, stir-fries, and stuffings. Some people are eating quinoa for breakfast, like oatmeal. I've seen quinoa pancakes and quinoa brownies. It comes in colors (white, red, black). I even have quinoa recipes on this blog. Yet, for all its versatility, I don't love it. Quinoa absorbs flavors from whatever surrounds it, and, like tofu, has little taste of its own, though people claim it's kind of nutty. Most likely it's the texture I don't like. If you love quinoa, please tell me: what am I missing? What's your favorite way to serve it?
