Quinoa is an ancestral and millennial cultivation of the Bolivian highland. Though used as a grain, Quinoa grain is actually the seed of an herbaceous plant. Quinoa grain can be cooked as one would with rice, on the stovetop or in a rice cooker. It absorbs more water than rice and develops a unique aroma during cooking.
Organic white quinoa grain.
Rinse thoroughly by running under fresh water for 3 minutes. Place 1 cup grain and two cups water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, cover, and reduce to simmer, stirring occasionally for 7 to 10 minutes.
