Quinoa Jollof Bowl, Really?
Lately, I have been loving on quinoa, and have used it many times to replace rice and other carbs. Well, you may say, but quinoa is carb. Not quite. Though it very much embodies a grain crop; it is actually a pseudocereal, in other words, quinoa is not a grass like the other grains (such as rice or wheat).Quinoa is truly one of nature's best; they are gluten-free, high protein, and has tons of vitamins and minerals that the body needs. Click To Tweet Quinoa is high in fiber and great for stabilizing or controlling blood sugar, plus other numerous health benefits.
Also, and as a matter of fact, quinoa in a salad is an absolute bomb! If you haven’t added them to your salads yet, oh, they are a must-try, because it helps you get full quickly.
Quinoa is a Quickie.
Anyways, this dish is super quick and easy to put together especially if you make the quinoa ahead of time, but even if you don’t, quinoa takes only 15 minutes to cook (yes 15 minutes), and then you can make magic with it.
In other to make my quinoa Jollof, you will need quinoa (apparently), and vegetables, take it a step further and add any protein of choice, I used drumsticks today.
