Quinoa, a delicately flavoured whole grain that originated in South America, is higher in protein than any other grain. You can find it in health-food stores or in the health-food section of large supermarkets. The good news for busy cooks is that it takes no longer to cook than white rice.
Toast the pepitas in a small, dry frying pan over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant, 3 to 5 minutes.
This is DELICIOUS - easy and very tasty. - 07 Mar 2012
Very delicious. Tangy and spicy (I used spicy green jalapenos). The kids loved the addition of pepitas. Thank you for the recipe. - 20 Jul 2016
