How to cook Quinoa

Quinoa is one of the few plant foods that’s a complete protein, meaning it provides all of the essential amino acids that your body needs. It’s also an excellent source of minerals.

Cooking Directions:

Always Rinse and Drain quinoa thoroughly in cold water before cooking.  For a more flavorful quinoa substitute your favorite broth instead of water.

Stove Top:

Place 1 cup quinoa and 2 cups water in a 1 1/2 quart saucepan and bring to a boil.

Reduce to a simmer, cover and cook until all water is absorbed, for about 10 to 15 minutes.  When done, the grain appears soft and translucent, and the germ ring will be visible along the outside edge of the grain.
