Ingredients needed for stuffed Quinoa Eggplant
Quinoa is a highly valuable food product, especially because of its nutritional properties. For example, its protein content is very high (14% -15% of its mass), although not higher than most legumes. The nutritional estimates show that the quinoa is a complete protein.
It’s a good source of fiber and phosphorus, as well as magnesium and iron. Quinoa is also a source of calcium, which makes it super beneficial for vegans and lactose intolerant people. In 100 g of raw quinoa, there are approximately (percentages of the recommended daily dose): 65% phosphorus, 35% iron, 55% magnesium, 14% protein and 7% dietary fiber.
Recently, I came across a lengthy discussion about the comparison of beans and quinoa, which I thought was unnecessary… Anyone who’s interested in the nutritional values of the food that is consuming can easily access the necessary information… There have always been ingredients that are more interesting or “more modern” in a given period, and there are always new to come. For example, chickpea skyrockets in popularity in the recent years, and it has been a well-known food in our country for centuries.
So why not cook something with quinoa? Like stuffed eggplants with tahini sauce… Mmm, pretty tasty!
