African Grey Pilaf

A recipe for discriminating tastes

By Pamela Clark, CPBC


1 cup quinoa (pronounced keen-wa)
2 cups water
grated carrots or yams
whole corn kernels (cut from cob or frozen)
grated zucchini or broccoli
½ cup flax seeds
½ cup ground walnuts
½ cup raisins or currants
1 teaspoon Udo’s Oil blend (look at health food store for this)


Bring water to a boil and add quinoa.  After mixture has come to a boil again, cover and turn heat to medium-low. Cook for five minutes, then add carrots or yams. Cover again and cook for another 10 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Turn into a bowl and mix with other ingredients. Feel free to experiment with this recipe. You can use almost any combination of fruits and vegetables. (Hint: the quinoa and shredded yams can be cooked together in a rice cooker also.)

Why would you cook something for a species that would live in the wild and I assume with no camp fire. They would normally eat raw. Why as humans do we try to humanize any animal
