Quinoa is Cool

My wife and I are "foodies". A few months ago we were watching a food show where the grain quinoa (pronounced keen-wa) was used. It is native to South America and has recently been growing in popularity because it is high in protein and other stuff that is good for you. As such, we have been using it in place of things like rice or pasta in meals. Last week, I had a spurt of inspiration and came up with a couple of dinners where quinoa played a central part. Since they turned out pretty well, I thought I would document them. The first is kinda a play on a classic cabbage roll and the other was a Mediterranean inspired pita. I will make each its own post so things are easier to keep track of.
