I’ve been a lover of quinoa for quite a while. So when I got my wisdom teeth removed last month, I was saddened that I couldn’t eat quinoa. I had been used to eating the same things over and over again, but some habits deserve a break.
When we went to Japan and I ate my weight in plain white rice. Yep, that’s my cue to have quinoa in my life again. Oh, quinoa, I missed you so much.
This Cilantro Lime Quinoa is basic. Like, good basic.
TIP: Make sure you rinse off your quinoa before cooking. It’ll rinse away any bitterness.
We got just a few ingredients in here that will spruce up your quinoa. Lime, Cilantro, and Black Pepper.
