Quinoa [KEEN-wah] Similar to rice or couscous, quinoa has gained recent popularity because of its health benefits.  Hailed as the “supergrain of the future,” it contains more protein than any other grain and all eight essential amino acids.  It is also higher in unsaturated fats and lower in carbs than most grains. 

Quinoa was a staple of the ancient Incans and remained important in South American cuisine.  It is just now becoming popular in the U.S.  You can find it in some supermarkets and many natural food stores.
