A Healthy Appetizer
So I am always looking for a delicious yet healthy appetizer to serve when I am hosting a get together. The other night I made these and everyone loved them!
Of course all of my guest asked me, “what are in these?” With a smile and knowing a mountain of questions were about to blossom, I said “Quinoa.” The replies, “Quinoa? What is that??”
So I danced at the opportunity to educate my guest on this wonderful grain free (yes, quinoa is not a grain, but a seed) ingredient.
So Just How Do You Pronounce Quinoa?
I have noticed that people want to try new things, they just don’t know how to cook them, or in this case even pronounce the ingredient. The correct pronunciation is “KEEN-wah”.
See video below to hear the correct pronunciation!
