Trader Joe’s Quinoa Duo with Vegetable Melange has an interesting, delicious flavor. One of the seasonings used is galangal. Closely related to ginger, galangal (pronounced guh-lang-guh) is a popular ingredient in the foods of Malaysia, Indonesia, Southeast Asia, and especially Thailand.
I love the blend of two kinds of quinoa, sweet potato and chopped zucchini. Quinoa (keen-wah) is a delicately flavored grain, was a favorite of the Incas, and because it is among the only grains that is a complete protein, it is a nutritional powerhouse.
It makes for a quick 7 minutes in the microwave side dish or for vegetarians a main dish. Look for it in Trader Joe’s freezer section. Be sure to buy a couple of bags.
