Quinoa is a recently rediscovered ancient "grain," native to Central America, where it was once known as the "Gold of the Incas" for its ability to sustain the strength of their warriors. It has a fluffy, creamy, slightly crunchy texture and a nutty flavor when cooked that is a good complement to the flavors in this pilaf.
