What Is Quinoa?

Quinoa (pronounced “keen-whah”) a grain, but it’s actually a seed — one that originated thousands of years ago in the Andes Mountains. Dubbed “the gold of the Incas,” it’s treasured because of its nutritive value (more protein than any other grain or seed!). It’s loved for its yummy, nutty flavor.

How To Cook Quinoa

Cooking quinoa is actually simple. First, you want to rinse the quinoa. Place the quinoa in a strainer and rinse with cold water for a minute.

To cook quinoa, use one part quinoa to two parts liquid.  Place both the quinoa and the liquid in a saucepan, and bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer, cover and let the seeds cook for 10 to 15 minutes — or until the water is absorbed, the seed is translucent and the germ is partially detached.

When cooked, quinoa has a crunchy, nutty flavor. It works great in savory side salads, mixed into veggie burgers and more. I also love it as a hot breakfast cereal — just pour in some cow, soy or almond milk and add chopped nuts for a crunchy topping.

You’ll also need spinach, cherry or grape tomatoes, shelled edamame, chicken breast and water chestnuts.
