I know the feeling. There are things I've really tried to like, giving it a second, or even a third, chance. But it just doesn't happen. Once I give it a few tries, I leave it alone. I don't believe in trying to force myself to eat something I just can't stomach.

One of those things is nori. Ugh, every time I've tried, I gag. I love sushi, but I won't eat it unless it's made with sesame or rice paper in place of the nori. I usually stick with nigiri, the bits that don't include nori.

That looks delicious. And those veggies - is that your own creation? Dang, now I know what I'm gonna get for lunch tomorrow. Steamed Vegetable Delight from the local Chinese joint.

Thank you Linda. That's chicken and veggie stir fry. They were both my creations.

That stir-fry is amazingly beautiful. What do you use for the sauce?

Thank you! I've got to make that soon. Perhaps this weekend, if I get the chance.

Oh and meant to ask you... do you rinse it first? I still haven't gotten many answers to my original question yet

Place quinoa in a fine sieve (strainer) and rinse well under water for about 2 minutes.

I have all three colored quinoa mixed together in a container. I think the white is pre-rinsed but the other two need to be rinsed. So I just rinse them all.

Gotcha. I should probably do the same.
