Personally, I like anything super, so after reading about its fantastic nutritional benefits, I decided to give quinoa a try.
So what makes this little grain so super? Quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) contains more protein than any other grain. It’s also gluten free and a great source of fibre, folate, magnesium and vitamin B6.
Now since we’re going super, I decided to combine quinoa with hearty vegetables roasted in sea salt, olive oil and rosemary. The combination is deliciously healthy – even my teenage nephew said so!
