Ingredients: Organic Red Quinoa
Cooking Instructions: 1 cup quinoa to 2 cups boiling water. Begin by soaking quinoa in warm water for 5 minutes. Wash, drain, and rinse several times with clear water. Add cereal to boiling water, cover and return to a boil, lower heat to simmer and cook for 10-15 minutes or until water is absorbed. Serve hot or cool to add to other recipes. (For an extra nutty flavor, place the dry grain in a dry frying pan, gently stir and toast to a very light brown before adding to boiling water.)
Quinoa is one of the healthiest, most nutritious foods on the planet. It’s naturally gluten-free, high in protein and one of the few plant foods that contain all nine essential amino acids. It is also high in fiber, magnesium, B-vitamins, iron, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, vitamin E and various beneficial antioxidants. White quinoa has a neutral taste, while black and red quinoa are bolder in flavor.
