Quinoa White 500gm
Whole grains play an important role in lowering the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and cancer, and also contribute to body weight management and digestive health.
The Supergrain Quinoa is an ancient grain dating 4000 years to the Incas. Quinoa is one of the most protein-rich foods available, containing all nine essential amino acids. It contains almost twice the amount of fibre as other grains, helping in digestion, heart health and blood sugar control. Quinoa contains antioxidants, iron, lysine, magnesium, B2 vitamins and manganese, all essential for energy production and tissue growth.

HOW TO MAKE IT
1 part uncooked quinoa (e.g. 1 cup quinoa—any color will do—you will end up with three times as much cooked quinoa)
2 parts water (e.g. 2 cups water)
Salt, to taste (around ¼ teaspoon salt per cup of dry quinoa)
Rinse the quinoa: Pour the quinoa into a fine mesh colander and rinse under running water for at least 30 seconds. Drain well. This step removes any bitterness on the outside of the quinoa (caused by naturally occurring saponins).
Combine the rinsed quinoa and water in a saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, then decrease the heat a bit to maintain a gentle simmer. Cook until the quinoa has absorbed all of the water, about 10 to 20 minutes (small amounts of quinoa will be ready closer to 10 minutes; larger amounts between 15 to 20). Reduce heat as time goes on to maintain a gentle simmer.
Remove the pot from heat, cover, and let the quinoa steam for 5 minutes. This step gives the quinoa time to pop open into little curlicues, so it’s nice and fluffy. Remove the lid and fluff the quinoa with a fork. Season with salt, to taste, unless you’re proceeding with another recipe as written.
