Today I put together a roundup of 10 new ways to cook Quinoa. Let’s hear it for the Quinoa lovers! Quinoa is such an amazing super food packed with protein. Quinoa by itself can be quite bland. But when you mix it in with dishes like the ones I’ve listed in here, it tastes absolutely amazing!
Quinoa is super easy to prepare. If you can cook rice, then you can cook Quinoa!
First off, I just want to let you know what brand of Quinoa I use and prefer. No, I am not getting paid to say this. This is truly what I love after experimenting with many different brands.
I use Ancient Harvest Organic Quinoa. You can buy this at most grocery stores, health food stores, or online. I used to be able to buy it at Target, but the one by my house quit selling it. Now I buy it at my local grocery store. It can usually be found in the same aisle as the rice.
This particular brand of Quinoa is Organic, and there is NO RINSING required! I’ve used some brands where the instructions say to rinse it a few times before boiling… who has time for that? Or a colander with small enough holes to put the Quinoa in to rinse? I mean really, Quinoa grains are super small!
