Quinoa has been prized by civilizations for thousands of years as a
super food of sorts, as it is rich in protein, iron, dietary fiber,
magnesium, phosphorous and iron! Quinoa is very easy to prepare and has
a delicate, nutty flavor. Great for entrees, soups, stews, salads or any
recipe that calls for whole grains.
To prepare: Bring 2 cups water (or
broth) to a boil, add 1 cup Quinoa. Return to boil, cover and reduce to
low heat and simmer for about 12-14 minutes, covered, or until all water
has been absorbed. Turn off heat, fluff, and re-cover for 15 minutes.
This will yield about 4 cups.
Typical uses: Pudding, curry, salad,
pilaf, bread, soup and baking.
