    I had to do a double take when I read “Quinoa con Queso” because I never expected to see a dish whose main ingredient is a native crop of my country (Peru – South America) here. Even more surprising was to see the exact combination we use here (Quinoa + cheese).

    Quinua (as we call it) is a crop that has been around since long before the Inka Empire. It is a very traditional in my country and is prepared frequently, especially in the Andes region (Highlands).

    I’m just glad to see it here and know that people around the world get to taste a little bit of my country.

    I’ll cook this version soon and see how it goes. Thank you for the recipe!

    In this last year we too have become obsessed with quinoa. I love it with goat cheese, olives, baby tomatoes, celery, a small amount of any nuts, few tablespoons of evoo and parsley. I also add a can of chickpeas from time to time to up the protein. Its a standard for us now. Lately I have been cutting the cheese to reduce calories, but the cheese is a great taste addition. It may seem a little more expensive than other grains or legumes(3.50 lb bulk at wf,) but a cup and a half of quinoa with the additions can easily serve six as a side or four for the main part of a meal. So its actually pretty economical for the nutritional value.

    This made a great weeknight meal. I like to cook vegetarian a few times a week, and quinoa is high in protein and minerals. I added a chopped green bell pepper (sauteed it with the onion), and substituted a minced chipotle pepper for a roasted green pepper since that’s what I had on hand. Can’t wait to make it again and experiment with more veggies!
