Quinoa is a great change from rice or potatoes with a bonus of lots of nutrients.
Use in soups, chili, salad and in waffles. It is popular in baking as well.
Natural Quinoa is a chemical-free grain that has a mild, nutty flavor. Works great in salads or rice dishes in place of rice. Natural Quinoa is gluten-free with a high protein content. It can be cooked in a variety of dishes or ground into a flour to make breads. A healthy grain to add variety to your long-term food storage.
Directions for use:
Rinse quinoa several times by running fresh water over it in a pot and pouring through a strainer. Place 2 cups water and a pinch of salt in a saucepan and bring to a rapid boil. Add 1 cup quinoa, reduce heat, cover, and simmer until all of the water is absorbed (15-25 minutes). For a rich, nutty flavor, toast quinoa (with or without oil) in a skillet, stirring constantly, before adding to the water.
