Quinoa is a great wheat free alternative to starchy grains and it’s slightly nutty flavour goes so well with the fresh zingy flavours of this gluten free salad. Quinoa is not a grass, but rather a pseudocerealbotanically relative to spinach and amaranth and originated in the Andean region of northwestern South America. If this appeals why not have a look at our Moroccan vegetable couscous.
