 NOTES : Quinoa is grown in southwestern US.  High-protein, easy to prepare,
 good background for tasty sauce.  It’s really in the spinach family but is
 used like a grain, and so is usually grouped with grains.  May be found in
 health food sections and at specialty shops (like Trader Joe’s).  Bulgur or
 brown rice are possible alternatives.
