Last summer, I tried quinoa for the first time.
I wanted to like it, but I just wasn’t a fan. A few friends suggested I should try a different recipe. It took me more than a year to try it again.
This time, I picked up a quinoa-rice blend to eat with some tilapia and zucchini.
The second time was so much better.
The blend had a cilantro flavoring, which also made a difference I think. The last time I made it, there was no flavoring. It was just a grain mixed in with peaches. The flavored blend was much tastier.
When the quinoa was close to being finished, I threw in some zucchini slices.
And then paired it with some tilapia (cooked it in butter, salt and pepper.)
