Healthy Lohi |Quinoa
Today I am bringing y’all a recipe I tried for the first time last week. My friend Ada of Afrizion asked me to help come up with some quinoa related recipes and also Sting of Nigerian Scorpio asked if I could make it a little Nigerian-esque. CHALLENGE ACCEPTED! First of all let me explain what quinoa is. Quinoa according to Wikipedia (such terrible source I know)
Quinoa is considered a superfood.Protein content is very high (14% by mass), yet not as high as most beans and legumes. Nutritional evaluations of quinoa indicate that it is a source of complete protein.[not in citation given] Furthermore, it is a good source of dietary fiber and phosphorus and is high inmagnesium and iron. Quinoa is also a source of calcium, and thus is useful for vegans and those who are lactose intolerant. Quinoa is gluten-free and considered easy to digest. Because of all these characteristics, quinoa is being considered a possible crop in NASA’s Controlled Ecological Life Support System for long-duration human occupied spaceflights
With the nutritional benefits, it only made sense for someone like me on this pursuit of health to try and incorporate quinoa into my diet. I made the quinoa in a jollof-esque form and it was very delicious! The next day I made some stuffed peppers and guess what, I stuffed them with the quinoa for a totally different taste. I also added rosemary and basil to the the stuffed peppers and next time I make the jollof-quinoa I would add basil because of how much I loved the taste. Here is a quick recipe for a delicious quinoa meal, I hope you enjoy it if/when you try it.
I hope you try this! I would do a part 2 with the stuffed peppers recipe in a few days. You can check out my facebook page to get an idea of the stuffed peppers. https://www.facebook.com/lohiscreations
Till next time,
I am currently battling a fever,cold,stomach flu and migrane that I have no idea where they came from. I have not been this sick in like 10 years. #sigh! My parents and partner have been amazing from thousands of miles away. I love and appreciate them. Back to bed.
