Roasted Corn, Quinoa and Cumin Chicken Kabobs

Why quinoa?
One cup of cooked quinoa has 15% fewer carbohydrates and 60% more protein than a comparable amount of brown rice; it also has 25% more fiber, which can help lower blood cholesterol.

Colori Downtown Los Angeles

Colori is fab for home style Italian in a very casual setting, perfect for dining solo or with a group. Yes, it's noisy and not on a particularly nice street, but really worth it.

  Before opening Colori 3 yrs ago, Chef Luigi Barducci Contessi spent 15+ years at Ca Brea and before that he was at Locanda Veneta,  This may explain why Ca Brea has been so disappointing for the last few years, but lucky for downtown diners if they visit Colori. 
Seafood stew, a favorite of Colori regulars,  is not on the menu, but they will make it upon request with whatever seafood they have on hand.
