Steamed Quinoa and Smoked Salmon Salad 藜麦烟熏三文鱼沙拉


Quinoa has become one of the most consumed and sought-after health foods in the world. It is often cooked and served in a similar way to most grains. However, the quinoa plant itself is actually more similar to beetroots and spinach. 

As compared to white rice, which is a staple food in Southeast Asia, quinoa is more appealing in terms of the nutritional profile. 

Quinoa is a complete protein - it contains all the 9 essential amino acids that our bodies cannot produce on our  own. Amino acids are vital for supporting muscle development and immune activity, among other essential functions.

It is also rich in both minerals and fiber, with much higher amounts of nutrients .
