This quinoa has been pre-washed to remove its bitter saponen coating.
We recommend lightly toasting quinoa in the oven prior to cooking it for extra flavor.
Once cooked quinoa is an excellent substitute for couscous, rice, or bulgur. Simmer each cup of quinoa in two cups of water for 15 minutes. When ready the grain will pop, releasing its curly bran. Each cup of dry quinoa yields 2 cups cooked.
In addition to serving it as a hot side dish, try using quinoa in soups or blending it cooked but cooled with herbs, vegetables, and maybe some vinegar to make grain salads. It's delicious paired with both meat and seafood.
