Quinoa

The news: It’s popping up on restaurant menus across the country. A tiny, tasty seed (not a grain) native to the Andes, quinoa is now a major crop in Colorado.

Feel-good factors: Quinoa is a good source of protein and fiber, and it’s gluten-free. Plus it comes in white, red, and black―so you can make a healthy dinner that’s beautiful too.

Ways to try it: Quinoa cooks very quickly (15 minutes) and is a great substitute for rice (it even cooks well in a rice cooker). Use it in pilafs or as a bed for stew.
