Quinoa is superfood that should be included in everyone’s diet. Here are some important health benefits ~ It is high in protein, good source of riboflavin, alkaline forming and it is a complex carbohydrate with low glycemic index, and because quinoa is not a grain but a seed it is also gluten free. In this recipe I have added fresh parsley and sweet grapes both of which compliment each other, thus creating a delicious pilaf.  If you are not a fan of quinoa you must try this recipe and you may change your mind. You can serve it cold, warm or hot. Enjoy!
