What Are The Benefits of Quinoa?


Not only is Quinoa a superfood that's a complete protein with all the amino acids the body needs, along with iron and fiber, but it's often touted as a popular superfood - and for good reason!

Add to the fact that it is high in antioxidants and promotes weight loss - quinoa has proven itself to be an amazing addition to any diet.


How Do You Cook Quinoa?


Cooking pseudocereal may seem difficult to deal with at first but there are a few tricks to make sure it turns out fluffy and delicate. 

  • Always make sure to wash your quinoa before use. There is a natural coating on it that will result in a soapy, bitter taste if not removed. 
  • Quinoa just requires boiling for about 12 minutes but ensure that it is uncovered to allow the water to evaporate and prevent it from getting mushy 
  • Make sure to allow it to rest covered inside the pot for a few minutes after to dry out and prevent clumpy quinoa. 
  • Fluff it out with a fork once complete! It should be soft and translucent with a ring visible along the edge.
