Quinoa ( // or //, Spanish: quinua, from Quechua: kinwa), a species of goosefoot (Chenopodium), is a grain-like crop grown primarily for its edible seeds. It is a pseudocereal rather than a true cereal, or grain, as it is not a member of the grass family. As a chenopod, quinoa is closely related to species such as beets, spinach, and tumbleweeds.

Mmm....quinoa is super yummy. I first ate it at Coralees for dinner a while back; in lieu of rice. Then, JC made a super fab chocolate cake with it not too long ago. She made it again today so we put raspberries on it and ate it for dessert. Tres deliciouse. I will post the recipe once I locate it...it's also gluten free!
On another note, JC & I are being quite productive & studying right now. We take study breaks because otherwise we would be dead, hence the cake :)
