I had several people tell me they like it better than typical fudge!
And everyone that tried it really enjoyed the chocolate coconut goodness.
"its protein content is very high (12%–18%). Unlike wheat or rice (which are low in lysine), quinoa contains a balanced set of essential amino acids for humans, making it an unusually complete protein source. It is a good source of dietary fiber and phosphorus and is high in magnesium and iron. Quinoa is gluten-free and considered easy to digest."
SO there you have three good reasons to try quinoa gluten free, high in protein, easy to digest!
I cooked mine and added avocado and some onion and bell pepper then added some olive oil a dash of Apple cider vinegar and some of my favorite spices: Salt, Garlic, Cayenne, Chipotle, and Chili powder.
Although it's not a true grain it cooked like on, so any way you would cook or spice rice,
would also be good for quinoa
I hear it is also amazing with coconut milk and mango!

Don't just take my word for it! try it yourself
meat (the white part) from two Thai young coconuts
(see Thai young coconut blog for opening instructions)
pinch o sea salt
two or three heaping spoons full of cacao powder
some hemp milk (you can use any delicious liquid you prefer)
a dash of almond extract
throw all of the ingredients in the blender
(except the milk) start blending and add milk slowly just a bit at a time until the blender runs more smoothly there are less lumps, but not too much to make it watery
I like to add the almond extract at the end.
then put int he fridge to let it solidify a bit more
fabulous chocolaty yumminess!
I took this over to a dinner party and they loved it. We ate it with cherries
One dinner party attendee asked for the recipe.
a dash of apple cider vinegar
any other spices herbs or veggies you want!
bell peppers, chipotle, or curry
you get the idea!

I had heard of people marinating it to make it more plyable and easier to eat.
Last night I took a bowl of mostly Kale with a few other greens
I added a couple tablespoons of Oilve Oil
two cap fulls of apple cide vinegar
some sea salt, and garlic powder
a dash of agave
and tossed or gently messaged it, however you want to look at it
then I threw in some onion and avocado and bam!
it was a flavorful party in my mouth!
sooo yummy i couldnt wait to take a picture and upload it, I had to tell you now.
Cancer fighting superhero, packed with a crazy vitamin punch subdued into a flavorful medly by a little marinating. c'mon people how great is that!
