Quinoa (KEEN-wah) is one of the precious few vegetable sources of a complete protein, meaning it contains all the necessary amino acids in the proper balance for our bodies.
Compared to most grains, especially processed grains, quinoa is high in protein and fiber and many other nutrients. Although it is not technically a grain (because it is not a grass plant), many consider quinoa to act as a wholegrain in their diet.
Basic Cooking Directions
1 part rinsed quinoa
2 parts liquid
Heat to a boil.
Cook for 15 minutes until the seeds give up their sprouts.
It doesn’t get much simpler than that does it?
And yet quinoa teases us with its possibilities.
Quinoa plays freely in all cuisines from Asian to Mexican to Mediterranean.
