The New York Times recently published an interesting article on the role quinoa can play in traditional Passover meals. A seed that can resemble couscous and other grain-based fare when cooked, quinoa is now incorporated into many Passover meals. We love it! Not only is quinoa tasty, itâ€™s also gluten-free, packed with protein and a fantastic alternative to leavened-grain items such as bread.
The article points out that sometimes it can be difficult to determine whether a newer or out-of-the-box food is kosher for Passover. In fact, the article states that â€œThere are two camps on quinoa: rabbis who say it is fine, and those who regard it as suspect. But both agree that its suitability for Passover depends on how the crop is harvested and shipped.â€
