Lamb Chops with Quinoa "Risotto" and Asparagus
Week 2 of Tuesday's Blue Plate Special will feature Quinoa (pronounced KEEN-wah) - an increadibly nutritious ancient grain/seed native to the Andes. It has a nuttier flavor and more texture than rice, couscous or pasta. Delicious!
I generally use one of 2 methods depending on whether I want it to be fluffy like couscous or creamy like risotto. Tonight we are going for creamy. Check back tomorrow for the results.
