Quinoa salad in a dish.
Quinoa is often mistaken for a grain, but it is a seed. It is one of the only plant foods that supplies complete proteins, offering all essential amino acids in a healthy balance.
Quinoa is one of the most protein rich foods that you can eat.
It contains twice the fiber of traditional grains.
The cranberries in this dish add to the bright red color, while adding tartness to the recipe.
