quinoa w pomegranate, spanish onion & coriander,

i really like summer salads....hence my last two posts....i am also trying my very best to eat well!!!  quinoa (pronounced keenwa) is something i have newly discovered although it certainly is not new as it has been around for some 4000 years originating in sth america.  my cousin mardi & her husband wayne recommended quinoa after they made a recipe from the november delicious magazine & they loved it....i found quinoa in woolworths in the health food section + have since bought it at health food shops.

quinoa is simple to prepare & really delicious + it contains twice the protein of regular cereal grains, contains less carbohydrates, more healthy fats, fiber, phosphorus, calcium & is high in iron.
