But even if you’re already very familiar with this protein-rich ingredient, we’re positive that you will find a bunch of new ideas for how to prepare it!
It can be used to swap out rice or oatmeal in many instances, bump up the fiber or mineral content of your meals and it works for a great number of people dealing with digestive issues and having to choose gluten-free grains.
Quinoa has definitely become much more popular over the last few years and it allows us to create more variety in our plant-based dishes.
If you’ve never cooked quinoa from scratch, we suggest you rinse the seeds to make them less bitter or soapy and use some vegetable broth to cook it in for your savory meals.
To give you a rough idea, you need about 2 cups of liquid for every cup of dry quinoa — which will result in 3 cups of cooked quinoa after around 20 minutes. Choose between white, red and black quinoa if you want to switch things up!
