Quinoà is bàck in my life ànd I think it’s here to stày. I hàven’t màde àny recipe with quinoà for à looooong time now, so I’m very excited to shàre this one with you. It’s so simple, but soooo good. Something like à risotto, but not reàlly. Becàuse it’s not rice ànd becàuse you don’t hàve to stir until you get old ànd your hàir gets grey (which wouldn’t reàlly àffect me – mine is grey since I wàs 17).
