So this whole low carb thing. It works, the only thing that gets the stubborn 5-10lb off of me. But…I really miss rice. Quinoa does an okay job, though. It is it’s own flavor, so I find if you don’t try to think of it as “fake rice,” but rather its own very good thing, it does well. It’s never been my favorite over the years, but I semi need its niche now! It is one of the few grainy items that are not incredibly offensive to the low-carb folks. And I would argue what carbs it has are outweighed by it’s nutritional and functional benefits. I really enjoyed this, and as typical with quinoa, add what you like best!
