I love the versatility of quinoa because it can be used in all kinds of dishes, savory and sweet. I had a conversation with a Peruvian chef who was in the process of writing a book about quinoa and he told me that the perfect combination for it is dairy and fruits. It didn’t surprise me since quinoa can be cooked as polenta, for example, and you can have a delicious meal by adding cheese, milk and butter. On the other hand, you can prepare it as oatmeal for breakfast with fresh and dried fruits, and you’ll have a great source of energy to start your day. It goes great with many things, be it fruits, chicken or tuna.
The aioli is very simple; I made it with natural yogurt because it’s a great way to combine different flavors and textures. Try it and you’ll see how these little bites become part of your bag of food tricks.
