Goods To Know Cooked Quinoa

Quinoa is soooo in right now, it’s in everything from cereals and salads to sweet snacks. I’m a big fan of this lovely, gluten-free grain as it’s a complete protein, with lots of fiber and iron plus it’s a bit of a chameleon in the kitchen.

For me the easiest way to make quinoa is in a saucepan, if you’re feeling extra adventurous you can soak it and sprout overnight before cooking for an enzyme boost… see here for sprouting instructions.

Cooked Seasoned Quinoa 

1 cup organic quinoa
2 cups filtered water
mineral salt to taste
Italian seasoning (optional)

Place water, quinoa and spices in a pan, bring to a boil then turn down to a high simmer for approximately 20 minutes or until grains reach desired consistency.

This seasoned quinoa is great to take into the office for lunch with some chopped tomato  avocado and pepper. Simple and delicious!
