Merchant Gourmet Persian-Style Quinoa

If I had to sum this up in one word, it would be “roughage”. It feels very virtuous: lots of fibrous grains to chew on, packed with protein and low in fat.

I ate it with some homemade sausage and pepper casserole, which admittedly looks awful in the picture. It ended up being a very heavy meal, and a struggle to finish. This works quite well as a side dish and should really feed two people.

I’m writing this review about 4 months after I ate the food – my memory is hazy. Hey, I’m only human. I don’t really remember how this tasted – I just remember its texture and how it made me feel. I also seem to remember it being quite expensive for what it is.

If I saw this on the shelf, I wouldn’t buy it again.
