 If you’ve yet to experience the wonders of quinoa, you might want to consider it. It’s very versatile, can be used as a meat substitute or compliment. It can also be used as a grain or to substitute eggs in certain recipes. However you choose to use it, you’ll be amazed at the amount of nutrients it has. In just 100 grams, you’ll find 14 grams of protein, vitamin B-6, and high amounts of magnesium. Today, Great Harvest in Newtonville would like to share a delicious and savory recipe with quinoa, cilantro and lime quinoa salad.
