How to cook : Perfect Quinoa


Quinoa is a complete protein containing all essential amino acids.  It's light and fluffy in texture.  We can store the leftover quinoa in the refrigerator and use it later. 


Ingredients :

  1. Quinoa - 1/2 cup
  2. Water - 1 cup
  3. Pinch of Salt
  4. Oil - 1/2 tsp

Method :

1.  Rinse quinoa in a fine mesh sieve until water runs clear.  Drain and transfer to a pot.

2.  Add a cup of water, salt and 1/2 tsp of oil to the pot and bring to a boil.

3.  Cover, reduce heat to medium low and simmer until water is absorbed (it takes around 15 to 20 mins).  

4.  Set aside off the heat for 5 mins; uncover and fluff with a fork. 


Serve.
