Get more protein than any other grain with rice-like quinoa. What a way to fill vine-ripened tomatoes!
Qunioa (KEEN-wah), an ancient grain is indeed a whole grain. Eating at least 3 servings of whole grain daily may help reduce blood cholesterol.
When cooked, quinoa expands to 4 times its volume. Quinoa is lighter than rice, but it can be used in place of rice in both sweet and savory recipes.
To remove quinoa's bitter-tasting natural coating, rinse it thoroughly with cold water.
If large tomatoes are used, cut them in half and scoop out the pulp. Use half of a tomato for each serving.
