Meatless Mondays: Quinoa 'burgers' with portabella mushroom 'buns'
By Edible Times on September 17, 2012
I think quinoa just might be the healthiest grain on the planet. You see, without boring you with all the scientific details, it’s a complete protein. And for a grain, that’s saying something. You see the only other complete proteins – meaning food with all eight essential amino acids for human health – are meats. But they come with a lot of baggage. Quinoa comes without baggage, and actually brings much more to the table o’ health.
I am pleased to present a form of quinoa I hadn’t seen before until last week. Sprouted quinoa. Again, without all the boring details, the sprouting of grains activates natural enzymes (while keeping the temperature low) that many nutritionists and scientists believe up their nutritional ante. Click here for a list of study summaries on sprouting grains from the Whole Grain Council. Okay, good talk.
