About

I do love a good risotto. Since I've been eating quinoa for a couple of years now, I thought I could make a pretty good substitute using quinoa as a stand in for the rice in a risotto.

Quinoa is gluten free and contains complete proteins so not only does it taste good, it's good for you too.
