Quinoa crumbs

I’m always looking for ways to make my salads more interesting. Getting your greens is important, especially because there’s a link between eating more cruciferous veggies and survival for women with breast cancer.

But salads aren’t just about the greens: it’s important to top them with healthy options, too. Put away those fake bacon bits! If you want a little crunch, all you need is to make some quinoa crumbs.

Quinoa has been a healthy pantry darling for a while now, because of its high protein and fiber content (among other things). But I’ve only recently begun to see people toasting them to make a topping. My favorite recipe is this one from the New York Times.

What do you think? Would you try crunchy quinoa crumbs?
