You Can Cook: Quinoa Podcast
(HealthCastle.com) One of the most popular grains in the marketplace today is quinoa. To prepare quinoa from scratch, start by rinsing half a cup of raw grains under running water. This step is important because it helps remove the bitter-tasting saponins naturally found in quinoa. Drain well, then, add it to a pot, along with liquid. Let it simmer on the stove for about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let it sit for another 5 minutes before fluffing with a fork.
A half-cup of raw quinoa will yield one and a half cup cooked, so you can easily store the leftover in the fridge for next day’s lunch. For more healthy eating tidbits, go to HealthCastle.com and don’t forget to subscribe to our channel.
