Quinoa (you pronounce it KEEN-WAH) is an ancient grain from South America. Well, actually it's a seed, but it's a member of the grains and cereals food group. It has a delicious nutty flavor and it's usually served the way you'd serve rice or maybe oatmeal. It's also a great source of dietary minerals like iron and magnesium.
