Quinoa is a grain that's now a very popular alternative to rice or cous cous. It cooks in the same way, taking 10-15 minutes in boiling water to bring out a soft, fluffy consistency. Serve quinoa wherever rice or cous cous can be used: with curries, tagines and casseroles, or in salads.

Nutritional Benefits of Quinoa

  • Quinoa is packed with protein - typically 5x as much protein as rice.
  • It's a "complete protein" containing all essential amino acids.
  • High in fibre.
  • High in minerals including iron, calcium and potassium.
  • Quinoa also has a low glycemic index - meaning that it releases its energy slowly throughout the day, keeping you fuller for longer.
  • Quinoa is much better than rice in all of the above respects. Can be used as an alternative to rice.

Directions

Cook quinoa exactly as you would cook rice. Our method is as follows:
  1. Pour quinoa into a saucepan. Use one cup of quinoa per person.
  2. Cover the quinoa with boiling water, 2cm above the level of the quinoa.
  3. Fit a lid and bring to a simmer.
  4. Turn the heat right down and simmer for 10-15 minutes until all of the water has evaporated.
  5. When the the consistency of the quinoa is light and fluffy, it is ready to serve.

Ingredients:

Whole quinoa. (Last Batch packed: produce of Peru).
