Quinoa (Keen-wa) is a delicious protein, iron and B vitamin-filled grain. It cooks up just like rice and has a bit of a crunch. Use it as a base for salads or stir fries or alone as a side dish.
- 1 cup quinoa
- 2 cups water
- Rinse quinoa well to reduce bitterness. I put it in a fine strainer and rinse it under cold water.
- Place ingredients in a covered pan.
- Bring to boil, reduce heat to low.
- Simmer for 20 or so minutes until all the water is absorbed.
