Quinoa is a food that begins with the letter Q. Quinoa is correctly classified as a seed and is gluten-free, making it easy to digest for many people.
This type of grain has a distinct nutty flavor, which makes it a great side dish on its own with a little bit of olive oil, sea salt and perhaps some cracked black pepper. Quinoa is a quick dinner choice. It takes only 10 to 15 minutes to prepare. It is also incredibly nutritious as quinoa is packed with the nine essential amino acids, is cholesterol free and is rich in iron.
