This easy, delicious dish will quickly become a family favorite, you don’t even have to tell them it’s healthy.
Use it as a side dish for just about anything, or even serve it up as the main event. Elizabeth also shows you how to make perfectly cooked, great tasting quinoa every time. It’s the perfect pasta replacement for gluten-conscious eaters.
(use organic ingredients where possible) To prepare the quinoa, rinse it well in a fine mesh colander and let all of the water drain.
Tips for preparing the quinoa
Add the rinsed quinoa to a pot and add double the amount of purified water or veggie stock, minus two tablespoons since there is liquid in the rinsed quinoa. (For example, 1 cup dry quinoa needs 2 cups minus 2 tablespoons of liquid.)
Bring the pot to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to low and simmer for about 12- 15 minutes until all of the liquid is absorbed and the little 'tail' of the quinoa has sprouted out.
Fluff with a fork and reserve for your recipe.
