Product Details

Quinoa is not really a cereal at all, but it is an edible seed from chenopodium, a grain like crop which has these nutritious seeds. Quinoa can be used as the carb part of any meal using it where you would use rice, pasta, potatoes or couscous. Quinoa is often referred to as nutritious because it is rich in amino acids and of course quinoa is so simple to prepare and tastes so fluffy and creamy with a slightly crunchy texture. You'll just have to try it to know what I mean.

Cooking Instructions

Rinse and strain. Place in a pan of water, bring to the boil , add salt if you need it, although you find it tastes great without, and simmer for 10-15 mins.Turn off the heat and let it rest for 5-6 minutes. When cooked the grain releases its white germ.

Usage

Use as a side dish, in salads, to make veg croquettes and for stuffing vegetables etc.

Ingredients

Just organic quinoa grain and nothing else.

I soak for as long as possible - Mon 18th Aug 2014
I try to soak these completely, the longer the better for me otherwise they stick in my teeth and the bitterness with the crunch doesn't really do it for me. I find soaking makes them more malleable for cooked foods unless using for a crunchy top layer which they are good for too.

Washing and soaking is essential to make Quinoa more palatable, soak for at least and hour, overnight is even better.
