I finally convinced my dad to buy quinoa. (The downside of only being 17 and living at home is that I don’t entirely choose what I want to eat). I’m so happy. I had never had quinoa before last night. I was not disappointed. That stuff is amazing!
I really love fried rice. I clearly remember the first time I had it. It was at a restaurant in Bangkok back in 2008. I wanted it for dinner the entire holiday afterwards.
I think subbing quinoa for rice made the dish even better. I like the texture of quinoa and the fact that it is quite high in proteins. Quinoa has 14 grams of proteins per 100 gram (uncooked), whereas rice only has 7,8. I love finding new high protein vegetarian foods.
Have you all had a great start on the new semester? Gosh, I think it is hard getting back to school after the holidays. Today for instance I participated in the second round of a big (I think international) match competition. Very hard questions, but is was quite funny actually (yep, I guess you all know by now that I am a little of a nerd sometimes).
Anyways – enjoy the quinoa!
