How to Cook Quinoa
Quinoa is very easy to cook! You can prepare quinoa much like the way you would prepare rice.
Cover it with water or vegetable broth and simmer it over medium heat until soft, about 15 minutes, giving it a couple quick stirs. Or place I part quinoa to 2 parts water in your rice cooker.
How is Quinoa used in recipes
Quinoa is a pseudo cereal; it is a seed that is similar looking to millet but can extend itself beautifully into most cereal based recipes.
Cooked quinoa seeds become fluffy and creamy, yet maintain a slight crunch. It has a delicate and subtly nutty flavour, versatile for breakfast (as a cereal), lunch (as a salad) or dinner (as a side).
How much do you need ?
Grains such as rice or wheat in our daily meal can be replaced with Quinoa.
