Quinoa

Collection of quinoa recipesjump to the recipes

Quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) is a complete protein, it's low in fat, high in protein, and rich in calcium. Quinoa has been labeled a "super food". It contains an amino acid called lysine which makes it a complete protein. It has a delicate nutty flavor and is quicker to cook than rice. Most commonly you'll see white quinoa but some stores carry red or black quinoa as well. Quinoa needs to be rinsed before cooking or it may be bitter. Then for basic cooking, heat one part quinoa to two parts liquid at a boil for 10-15 minutes. Let sit covered for 5 minutes, then fluff with a fork to separate the grains. One cup of raw quinoa makes about 3-1/2 cups cooked.
