Paella de quinoa / Quinoa paella

Bon dia!

El darrer pic que vaig anar al mercat de segona mà (permí fa dues setmanes) va ser un dia de sort, i vaig firar un grapat de cosetes interessants. Entre elles hi havia una mini paella (per 1 ó 2 racions) que em va costar 1€, no ho vaig dubtar! I per estrenar-me (mai havia fet una paella, encara que he vist a mu mare incontables vegades repetir el procediment) vaig decidir fer-la de quinoa, la qual he tastat algunes vegades i m'ha encantat. I en vaig sortit contenta, amb resultats satisfactoris, així que segur que caurà de tant en tant (ara tocar fer-la d'arròs).

Good morning!

Last time I went to the flea market (I reckon it was two weeks ago) I had a lucky day, as I ended up with a bunch of bargains. One of them was a small paella pan (for 1 or 2 servings), which cost 1€, I had no doubts about it! So to start off with it (I had never made a paella before, although I've seen my mother repeat the procedure countless times) I decided to cook it with quinoa (instead of rice), which I've tasted a few times and loved it. I was glad about it, as it came out with successful results, so I'm making it from time to time (next time with rice).
