Quinoa and beans are staples in our house and in our restaurant, and for good reason: They’re incredibly nutritious, providing fiber, protein, vitamins, and minerals. Quinoa is a complete protein and one of the oldest grains known. It’s gluten-free and has an interesting nutty flavor. This special grain originated in the Andes, and thanks to the Incas it has been shared with much of the world. This favorite recipe, based on the traditional Argentinian sauce chimichurri, is generally served alongside meats. Serve it as an entree or as a side to a veggie burger for a delicious meal.
