Quinoa is so healthy, but I hadn't succeeded yet to find a way to prepare it so it is tasty enough for my crew. Then I saw this recipe for Parmesan Quinoa in Susie Fishbein's cookbook, Kosher by Design: Teens and 20-Somethings. As it turns out, mixing quinoa with Parmesan cheese was the secret to making quinoa a popular dish in my home.
