My Ayurveda Kitchen: Delicious Quinoa Bowl for Autumn

Before going to the recipe let me explain a little bit about quinoa. Quinoa is not classified as a grain; it is a pseudo-cereal.

What exactly is a pseudo-cereal? A pseudo-cereal is one of many non-grasses, such as amaranth, quinoa and buckwheat, that are used in much the same way as cereals (true cereals). Nutritionally, quinoa is considered a whole grain, which is a gluten-free complete protein. Yes, you heard it right!

Quinoa Health Facts

Now let’s move on to the recipe.
