A must-have superfood, Quinoa is actually a seed and is an easy substitute for white rice and pasta. It is a great source of plant-based protein and works wonderfully in any recipe that calls for rice or another whole grain.
To maintain the freshness and quality of our Quinoa, store it in an airtight container in a cool, dark place. Protect it from direct sunlight and moisture, as these can lead to spoilage.
Begin by rinsing the quinoa under cold water to remove any remaining saponin. For a basic preparation, use a 1:2 ratio of quinoa to water. Bring it to a boil, then lower the heat, cover, and simmer for about 15–20 minutes, or until the water is absorbed and the grains are tender. Fluff it with a fork, and it's ready to enjoy.
