Quinoa, a seed that is used like a grain, is a complete protein, has more calcium than milk, and is both delicious and easy to prepare.
|Directions||Rinse the quinoa repeatedly until the water runs clear. Place in pan with water and salt and heat to boiling. Cover, reduce heat to medium, and simmer until quinoa is tender and water has been absorbed, about 20 minutes.|
|Notes||After the quinoa is cooked, you can toss it with up to a cup of one or more ingredients like sautéed onions, celery, carrots, and bell peppers, and/or thawed corn or peas to make a delicious quinoa pilaf. It’s also a great replacement for rice.|
