    Quinoa is one of those “super foods” we are all supposed to be eating. However, I still struggle with incorporating it into our diets. We have found that quinoa salads are one of the easiest ways to eat quinoa, not to mention it’s a perfect meatless meal.

    I sprayed some non-stick spray into various bowls and ramekins and inserted one softened tortilla into each dish. I sprayed again and baked until crisp. Instant, edible tortilla bowls.
