How to cook


v Dress simply while still hot with lime or lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil and a little sea salt and black pepper, and you’ve got the foundations for a delicious meal.

6 Steps to Perfect Quinoa:

1. Rinse. Always rinse quinoa before cooking to wash off the saponins to avoid a bitter quinoa. Rinse 1 cup of quinoa until the water is clear.
2. Season.  Sprinkle 1 tsp. garlic powder, 1 tsp. cumin, 1 tsp. coriander, and ½ tsp. of cayenne pepper onto the rinsed and drained quinoa until well coated.
3. Pour. Take one cup of quinoa and a little less than two cups of water or vegetable broth and pour it into a pot.
4. Boil. Bring everything to a boil, then cover and let simmer for 15 minutes. Big important tip: Don’t open the lid!
5. Wait. If you’re impatient like me, this part is going to kill you! Once the 15 minutes have passed turn the stove off and without opening the lid let the quinoa sit for about 3-5 minutes.
6. Finally, open it up. The aroma of spices and beautifully cooked quinoa should fill up your kitchen. Do not use a spoon. I repeat do not use a spoon. Take a fork and lightly fluff the quinoa and enjoy!
