How to cook or use Quinoa?

Although Quinoa has been pre-washed once, we do advise you to wash it thoroughly again as it does retain its bitter coating. Put quinoa in a strainer, wash, clean and rinse it thoroughly twice or thrice under cold running water before you boil.

To use Quinoa as a substitute to rice; take 1 cup of quinoa wash it thoroughly under running water. Boil the washed quinoa in two cups of salted (1/2 tsp) water. Let it boil for 15-20 minutes. Once the water is absorbed, fluff it with a fork and add spices and butter for taste.

This superfood is popular for being served in steamed or stir fried vegetables and salads. The nutty rich flavor of the grain absorbs the taste of gravy and dressings. You can also make protein bars, granola bars and even baked foods this is whole grain.

Furthermore you may also use this superfood as a face mask to reduce your aging signs as well.

To do this first cook ¼ cup of quinoa in soy milk and let it cool. Then blend this boiled quinoa with 3 teaspoons of yogurt, 2 egg yolks, and 2 drops of mimosa or similar type of essential oil.

You can then apply it to your face and neck and leave it on for atleast 20 minutes. Finally rinse with lukewarm water.

    Wish you guys had written it should be washed thoroughly to remove its bitter taste which came through after cooking it in water, salt and turmeric. Usually I buy Earth’s quinoa from my supermarket and it doesnt need to be washed to remove the bitterness from the grain.

      Unfortunately, quinoa does need to be washed properly for best results.

      So sorry to hear that Abid. What makes you feel that way?

      Some customers have complained that it is a little bitter but generally washing it couple of times solves that problem.

      We pride ourselves in providing the best quality products so please feel rest assured.
