Hundreds of meal ideas for incorporating this delicious protein powerhouse into your cooking repertoire.
By now you've probably heard and seen all the positive press about quinoa -- it's now firmly established in the superfoods hall of fame.

It's also an excellent source of magnesium, folate, phosphorus, iron and fiber so it's an ideal ingredient for vegans, vegetarians and flexitarians. And because it's also gluten-free, it's a valuable ingredient for anyone affected by gluten intolerance.
