  • It’s All About Quinoa

    This ancient grain is part of the amaranth family and originated in the South-American Andes. The red and white varieties are packed with dietary fiber and minerals, much like wheat and rice, all the while being gluten-free! It is cooked much like rice too, but needs to be rinsed beforehand to remove any bitterness from its outer shell. Sweet or savory—both work great with quinoa!

  • How to Make It

    Add vegetable stock to saucepan and warm. Add quinoa to sieve and rinse thoroughly, then add to saucepan and bring to a boil. Add further seasoning like bay leaf or curry powder, if desired. Reduce heat and simmer for approx. 10 min. Remove from heat and cover. Let it steam for another 10 – 15 min. Fluff with a fork and serve. Enjoy!
