Mouse lives in Hawaii where Spam is very popular. I’ve heard that in addition to many Asians, the inhabitants of Hawaii and Guam are the largest consumers of Spam. In Hawaii and Japan the varieties of Spam are huge. I wish we had this number of varieties in Australia. As far as I can see in Coles and Costco we just have classic and low sodium varieties. When I searched the recipes on the Spam website there were none for quinoa
If bacon makes quinoa better spam can make it even better
I prepared myself earlier with a Spam lunch because I wanted a Spam Saturday
So tonight I made a fennel and red onion salad and served it with Spam and some bacon. This was supercharged quinoa.
The secret to supercharging quinoa is to add streaky bacon and Spam
The finished meal was pretty delicious.
It’s been cold in Canberra today although I did manage to enjoy a good walk around Lake Ginninderra.

I really hope you enjoy cooking and eating quinoa. Of course it can be made and eaten with all sorts of other yummy things, but for me this is supercharged quinoa.
How do you like to supercharge your quinoa?
