How to cook:

Protein-rich Quinoa has a mild nutty flavor when cooked, with a slightly crunchy texture. The simplest way is to cook it like rice. Rinse the grains of Quinoa under running water using a strainer. This removes remaining saponins, the bitter external coating of the grain. Bring to a boil in a saucepan – 1 part grain, 2 parts water/stock and then reduce the heat to low, simmer for another 10-15min until quinoa has absorbed the water. Cooked quinoa stores well in the refrigerator (for a few days). Make a quinoa salad with other vegetables, or cook it like porridge. Cooked quinoa can be added directly into cereals, soups, sauces, curries, etc…very versatile whole grain.

For those who are used to rice and new to Quinoa, add Quinoa to rice in equal proportions in a rice cooker using the same water to grain, 2 to 1 ratio. Quinoa expands pretty much like rice i.e. about 3 times more when cooked. It will make the cooked rice even more delicious with a slightly fluffy/crunchy texture and a mild nutty aroma.

Comparing White, Red and Black Quinoa White Quinoa:

White Quinoa: The most common color of quinoa (pronounced KEEN-WAH) is white. White quinoa is actually a bit more tan than white, so sometimes it’s called tan quinoa, ivory quinoa, golden quinoa, yellow quinoa, blond quinoa, or just quinoa. Of all the quinoa colors, white quinoa has the most delicate taste and the lightest texture and it cooks up a bit fluffier than other types of quinoa.

Red Quinoa: Red quinoa (which takes on a brownish hue when cooked) has a richer taste, slightly chewier texture, and somewhat nuttier flavor compared to white quinoa. It’s often the quinoa of choice for cold salads as it holds its shape better during cooking.

Black Quinoa: Black quinoa has more of an earthy flavor than white quinoa

Combination of white, red and black quinoa gives a rounder texture as well as making any dish so much more colourful which in turn, appealing appetizing!
