I tried a quinoa and beet salad for my lunch today. The salad was fresh, tasty, and nutritious but above all... I am proud to mention that the quinoa used in this salad came from our own SUNSAI partner working in Gilgit Baltistan region of Pakistan. Since last year, he has introduced quinoa as a new crop to the region. He started on trial basis and is now working with a number of RSPs who are following in his footsteps and growing quinoa locally.
