As much as I love Italian food, I am really trying to eat healthier in 2010...Can't you tell by the pizzas, pot pies and cakes I have been making lately? Never mind the 1/4 pan of Nutella Brownies I ate on Sunday!
After seeing the movie "FOOD INC" which really enlightens us on how food is REALLY produced in this country, my thoughts have turned to eating chicken that gets to run around a farm, instead of being locked in the dark with thousands of other chickens with nowhere to go, and eating whole grains with more vegetables and LESS cheese!
Quinoa (Keen-Wah) is a gluten free seed that is derived from the goosefoot plant. It originates in the high Andes of South America, and has been a staple of the people for thousands of years. It is considered a complete protein and is easy to cook.
I found this recipe on Martha Stewart's Whole Living website, and decided this was a healthy alternative to baked ziti!
Sorry, my copy and paste is not working, and I am too tired to type the recipe!
Has anyone ever tried a quinoa recipe before?
