Maiden attempt at quinoa
Finally got around to making quinoa tonight, using some tri-color quinoa I bought at the "organic" market a week or so ago. Very pretty stuff - ivory, nearly black, and a sort of reddish-brown. It smelled for all the world like peanut butter while it was cooking, though of course it didn't taste like it. I think I either toasted it too long at the beginning or needed to add more water than the instructions recommended, because it was a bit dry and tasted a little scorched. I may have to try it a few times to get the hang of this.
