No news is good news

It's the week before Passover, making it time for the annual update on quinoa. And, so far, I haven't heard of any more bans. And, the pro-quinoa articles are all still on their originating websites; some include their original "check with your rabbi" disclaimers. Overall, this year, quinoa looks like it's safe from further kitniyotization.

I'd like to do a little more research, but I think that next year, I'm going to go back to the ORIGINAL minhog of qitniyyôth: just avoiding rice and millet.
i was given reports of quinoa being put in the 'qitniyot' or even worse the 'hhameitz' section of some israeli supermarkets this year
In application, that sounds less like it's based on a halachic opinion than simple mindlessness, but then again, we are discussing kitniyot. :-)
