Quinoa Pilaf

I taught at Radnor High School between 2004 and 2010 – so that’s going back a long time now. My coworker was ahead of the trends and implemented a “grain bar” segment into our level 1 class. We cooked risotto, bulgar wheat, rice and quinoa. The kids called it “qwin-o-ah” and pretty much had...
