It was a healthy cooking class where we learned and cooked a few things. This was delicious and very easy to make! "Quinoa (pronounced keen-wa) is a complete protein. It provides an essential amino acid balance close to the ideal needed in our diets. Quinoa contains more high quality protein than any other grain." Place quinoa in a strainer and run water over the grain to remove the excess starch. Place in 1 quart sauce pan with the water, and place over medium high heat until a simmer is reached. Reduce heat and maintain the simmer.

When liquid is almost completely absorbed, add the garlic and peppers.

Finish cooking until dry. Finish with the chopped herbs and pinch of salt.
