Cultivated for nearly 5,000 years in South America, quinoa is now mainly used as a side dish or incorporated into other dishes such as soups and pies. Its grains cook quickly and remain firm after cooking. Quinoa can easily replace rice, couscous or pasta and surprises with its nutty flavor. It is usually found in the natural or organic food section.
