Quinoa 101

If it makes it easier, we can start with how to say it:  Keen-wah.

Quinoa was an essential food of the ancient Incas but it's only received some mainstream attention in the last few years.  Much of what's written about this whole grain is about how healthy it is and how it contains eight essential amino acids, making it a complete protein.  But details like this don't inspire me. 

Instead I want to know -- What does it taste like?  Will I like it?  What do I do with it?
