Default Quinoa Pilaf

Check out the nutritional information and the title of the book it came
from. My nutritional information follows, and it sounds more realistic.
I sure hope the error is a typo by the original poster and not what the
book actually says.

I just made a quinoa pilaf using different ingredients due to my daughters
food allergies. And I think mine would have less carbs per serving. As
best I can figure, 3/4 cup of plain cooked quinoa has about 30 g of carb
(not subtracting the fiber).

I cooked my quinoa then added it to a mix of sweet peppers, carrots, celery
and green onion that had been chopped or diced and caramelized in some olive
oil. I also added fresh Italian type herbs from my garden. And I added
some fresh green peas at the last minute. It was very yummy!
