“This is the way I usually cook quinoa to eat it as a main course or as a side. You can make small changes to the recipe to make your own version: more indian, more chinese, more italian. Hope you enjoy it!”

  • Step 3/5

    You should see tiny spirals (the germ) separating from and curling around the quinoa seeds when it’s ready. If any liquid remains in the bottom of the pan or if the quinoa is still a bit crunchy, return the pot to low heat and cook, covered, for another 5 minutes, until all the water has been absorbed.

    While the quinoa is cooking, you can brunoise the red onion, the carrot and the red bell pepper. Heat olive oil in a wok or a pan and sauté the vegetables. Reserve until the quinoa is ready. You can get creative by adding some spices like curry, thyme, pepper -of course- or whatever you like.
