Quinoa (pronounced KEEN-wah) is actually a seed, but is often prepared and eaten as a grain alternative. Generally mild in flavour with a slightly chewy texture, quinoa is pleasant to eat and packed with nutrition!
Simply rinse quinoa in a sieve until water runs clear (about 2 mins). Boil 1 cup quinoa in 2 cups liquid (water/stock/milk) for 15 mins. Let quinoa stand for an additional 5 mins, and fluff with a fork before serving! Absolutely delicious!
