Are you looking for some easy to cook and healthy food? If yes then we have a perfect solution for you. The name of that recipe is Quinoa, Yes, quinoa is a superfood, full of protein, iron, fibre and an abundance of other attractive phytonutrients. And sure, it has a great back story; it was a staple food among the ancient inhabitants of the Andes, who cultivated the nutritious plant even at an elevation of 12,000 feet. Plus, it’s gluten-free, comes in several pretty colours and is not really so hard to pronounce (KEEN-wah, but you knew that).
It’s gently nutty, pleasingly earthy, with a crunchy texture that still manages to be light.
In the kitchen, quinoa cooks up quickly and very easily. Some people simmer it like rice in a small amount of water. I prefer the pasta method of boiling it vigorously in plenty of salted water, then draining. Both techniques will yield a similar result, but the pasta method allows you to avoid measuring. Either way, never overcook quinoa or you will get sodden mush. And don’t try mixing the colours (white, red and black) in one pot; they all have slightly different cooking times.
You can treat quinoa like a grain, serving it as a side dish, adding it to soups, simmering it into a pilaf or tossing it into a salad. In this recipe, I go the salad route, making enough to feed a crowd.
