Quinoa is a highly nutritious food. It contains more protein than any other grain. It is considered a complete protein because it has all eight essential amino acids. Quinoa is also higher in unsaturated fats and lower in slow digesting carbohydrates than most grains, and it provides a rich balance source of vital nutrients.
Preparation: Combine half a cup Quinoa with one cup water and simmer for 30 minutes or until tender. For a nuttier taste, toast the Quinoa in a hot dry pan for about 5 minutes before cooking. Rinse grains thoroughly before cooking.
