Quinoa Pilaf

Quinoa, the principal grain of the Incas, is high in protein and contains all eight essential amino acids. Rinsing the quinoa very well before cooking effectively eliminates its slightly bitter "green" taste. I found this recipe at WholehealthMd.com This would be great stuffed into pork chops.
