After typing in the recipe I read the nutritional analysis. It says there
are 188 calories per serving, and 5 grams of fat. That works out to 45
calories from fat, or abou 25%. I don't see where that fat could come from
other than the quinoa itself. Maybe there was supposed to be a decimal
point in front of the 5. According to Mastercook, Quinoa has 13.7% CFF.
