Made a very flavorful meal tonight,

grilled pork chops with garlic lime sauce, and

black bean and tomato quinoa. First time for quinoa, but will do i again. very nutty flavor, say compared to rice or couscous.


I will do this one again.


  • Nice looking meal. Quinoa is a wonderful choice and very high in fiber.

    Bob, until now, I've never HEARD of quinoa. Did you find it at Rouses? The meal looks delicious.
  • bobbybbobbyb Posts: 1,349
    Found it at our local health food store. Betsy went on a mission to find it at the regular food stores, but no luck.

    Angel just said that's something she'd like to try. I'll see if I can find it in Gulfport.

    If you can't find it let me know, I'll bring you some on Friday. BTW, I got rouses to cut the rib end chops about 1-3/4" thick. They were the bomb.

    Quinoa (keen-wah) is really good. It makes a nice addition to salads, etc. We use it fairly regularly due to a Vegetabletarian within the family. (My brother married one.....)

    Your meal looks really good!

    From the looks of all the color and texture, I thought the pork chop recipe was going to have a lot more ingredients. I like how straight forward this recipe is, nice job.

    I'm still getting used to quinoa. The red quinoa was a little "too grainy" for me but I like the lighter colors like the one you used.

    Hi Chris, Yes it had a very nutty flavor, which I quite liked.

    Here is another quinoa recipe I came up with
    1 cup quinoa
    1 pint vegetable broth(I got mine at Whole Foods)
    1 can rotel tomatos with chiles
    1 can water
    two hand fulls sharp cheddar cheese added in near the end
    I've also added a can of pinto beans and some chopped onion at times.

    Not cooked on the egg but great as a side dish.

    It's sold at Five Seasons in Ocean Springs in the bulk bins. It's also sold at Sunshine and they have more than one store. I once saw it at Walmart but not everyone of them.
  • bobbybbobbyb Posts: 1,349
    Thanks for this. I'll give it a go.

    Nice meal Bob
    Hearing more and more about Quinoa
    Going to pick some up
    Thanks for the post :)

    I about fell out when I bought it. Pound for pound, its the price of steak!
  • GulfcoastguyGulfcoastguy Posts: 183
    Yes but steak doesn't swell up to 4 times it's size when cooked. Should have been less than $5 per pound.
