I was trolling my favorite recipe site skinnytaste.com to find a gluten-free recipe since that is all the rage. I figured it would be good for all our Jewish friends who will be leaven-free for the next week or so as well. When going gluten-free quinoa is a great way to go. This South American seed has many grain-like qualities without actually being a grain. It is a great lower calorie substitute for rice or pasta. Enjoy!
