Black quinoa has such a nutty texture. It's become my favorite quinoa. I used it recently to create a delicious chocolate dessert but I admit I ate it for breakfast.

Sounds really good.

So I guess you eat cocoa? I haven't tried it yet but will soon.

Yes, I was using carob but found out I have delayed food allergies to it. You also could substitute carob for the cocoa in this recipe.
I don't eat a lot of cocoa but it works just fine for me, at least at this point in my recovery from candida.
