I do not know how to pronounce “quinoa”.
I have never eaten or cooked with quinoa before this week. I decided to splurge and take a chance and buy it. Next, I had to figure out how to cook it, and what to make with it. Since I had read somewhere that quinoa has a slightly nutty-flavour, I had a wonderful idea–how about putting sweet potatoes and maybe even some kind of nut with it?
Turns out my idea was not all that original. I decided to follow this recipe just to get an idea of the flavour of quinoa, without getting too adventurous at first. Of course I could not resist changing it just a little. I thought rosemary would fit in with the “nutty” flavouring better than coriander, cumin, and cilantro. It was delicious!
I think I will have fun inventing my own quinoa and sweet potato concoction in the coming weeks.
