Quinoa Recipe from Westside Market NYC
Ever since I tried quinoa about five years ago, I've been a fan. This little gluten-free grain packed with protein should be in every Celiac's pantry. Recently, I was sent an email from Westside Market here in NYC. It looks like my fellow New Yorkers are also embracing quinoa. Here's what Westside Market has to say...

Westside Market NYC, a top market that has been in business in New York City for almost 50 years, has seen a rise in the number of people purchasing quinoa at their four locations. Benefits of eating quinoa include that it is packed with protein and calcium, great for dieters as it keeps eaters fuller longer and boosts brain power due to the high level of iron.

Maria Zoitas, wife of Westside Market NYC’s founder John Zoitas, and creator of the Made by Maria line of prepared foods available at Westside Market NYC, has the below quick and healthy quinoa recipe to share with your readers.
