One of the most beneficial elements provided by quinoa is its overall abundance of nutrients. When the nutrient structure of it is analyzed in depth, the results are remarkable. Not only is quinoa one of the most protein-rich foods we can eat, but it also contains nearly twice as much fiber as most other grains. We added quinoa to fresh roasted vegetables. Roasting the vegetables makes them soft and tender, brown and caramelized, and full of intensified flavor.
