Our final week of our 3-ingredient recipe series focuses on grains, and quinoa was the clear winner yesterday, pulling in 53% of the vote.
Earlier this year, we picked quinoa as one of the 30 Healthiest Foods because it is one of the only meat-free complete proteins. Surprisingly, it is actually a seed that cooks like a grain and can be substituted for couscous and bulgur in many recipes.
One of our favorite 3-ingredient recipes with quinoa: Add freshly squeezed lemon juice and chopped fresh dill into cooked quinoa for an easy side dish.
