How to make:

  • Boil in a ratio of 3 measures of water to 1 of quinoa. It can be mixed with vegetables or plain;
  • Adjust the quantity of quinoa to the size of the pot. If the pan is too small the quinoa is likely to be mushy and overcooked;
  • You should use a thick-bottomed pan with a lid;
  • Quinoa should always be washed before use. Even the already processed varieties should always be rinsed to remove any trace of saponin;
  • Rinse the seeds in running water through a strainer;
  • Place the quinoa and the water or broth in the pan and bring to a boil;
  • Cover the pan and reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer for 15 to 20 minutes;
  • The quinoa is ready when the grains are translucent and all the liquid has been absorbed;
  • Release the grains with the help of a fork and remove them from the heat. Cover with the lid for another 5 to 10 minutes.

Uses: Can be eaten cooked in soups, raw in cold salads, or mixed into yogurts and pancakes.

Recommended quantity: (minimum) 2 tablespoons Quinoa Seeds per day.
