How To Make quinoa- basic cooking method
1Place quinoa and water in a 1-½ quart saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover and cook until all the water is absorbed (about 15 minutes). You will know that the quinoa is done when all the grains have turned from white to transparent, and the spiral-like germ has separated. Makes 3 cups.
2INFO: Quinoa has become highly appreciated for its nutritional value, especially since its protein content is very high (18%) and it is a source of complete protein. It is also a good source of dietary fiber and phosphorus. It is high in many vitamins and minerals, including magnesium, thiamine, riboflavin, folate, and iron. Quinoa is gluten-free and considered easy to digest. Quinoa is a great addition to a vegetarian, Heart Healthy, and/ or low fat diet.
