Quinoa

by Jennifer on January 13, 2009

Have you heard of Quinoa? Incorporated it into your diet yet? No, shame on you. It is a seed from the goosefoot plant and is an ideal food for all of us because it is a complete protein, and is especially useful for those on some restrictive diets as Quinoa flour can be used in gluten-free baking.

Directions:
1 cup Quinoa
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 teaspoon salt
Place rinsed Quinoa into pot, add water and salt. Bring to a boil, cover and turn heat down to simmer. Cook for 20 minutes. Remove from heat, fluff with fork and serve.
