Quinoa

Quinoa (pronounced KEEN-wah) is the high protein dried fruits and seeds of a goosefoot plant (Chenopodium quinoa); these are used as a food staple and ground into flour. Quinoa is washed before cooking to remove a bitter residue from the spherical seeds. It is treated like a grain, but it is actually the fruit of an herb and it cooks twice as fast as rice. Quinoa produces its own natural insect repellent.
