Experiments with Food: The Quinoa Edition
After months of wandering through Thailand, Turkey, Morocco, and Italy, I’m back in Montreal visiting my family for a few weeks. One of the great things about being home (other than seeing family, of course!) is access to a full kitchen — something I miss while out on the road.
First up: Experiments with quinoa! I made this quinoa in strongly brewed Chai tea with vanilla, then served it with swiss chard and roasted chicken with cumin. Surprisingly, it actually worked well. The quinoa took on a great flavour, sweet and smoky all at once, and the chicken and crunchy sunflower seeds I used to top it complimented the flavors well.
Experiment: Success! I’m calling it Teanoa.
Now, what tea do I try next?
