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?” and 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. 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!
So what are you waiting for. Head on out and get yourself some delicious quinoa and try this wonderful new recipe that everyone will enjoy!
