Basic Quinoa

Basic Quinoa

Serves 4 (makes about 4 cups)

Quinoa is a complete protein containing all eight essential amino acids. It’s light and fluffy in texture but has that whole grain ability to fill people up–and if you’ve got company coming, this recipe easily doubles to serve eight people.

Ingredients
1 cup quinoa
2 cups water
1/2 teaspoon salt

Method
Rinse quinoa in a fine sieve until water runs clear, drain and transfer to a medium pot. Add water and salt and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium low and simmer until water is absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes. Set aside off the heat for 5 minutes; uncover and fluff with a fork.
