  1. It's hard to get sick of quinoa when there are just so many different options! Definitely trying out the chili this weekend

  2. I'm fascinated by this foods versatility. I'm a fairly new vegetarian and delving more into more diversified recipies. I'm trying to figure out how to use this to replace flour, and flour really doesn't agree well with me.

    1. We love it, too, Enrique. You can try using quinoa flour. It can't completely replace wheat flour, but by using 1/2 and 1/2, you can cut down on the wheat flour.
