Crazy about quinoa? This grain-like super seed has skyrocketed in popularity as the ultimate rice-replacement, with fluffy, chewy texture, irresistible nutty flavor and a power-packed nutrient punch.
From a native South American plant, quinoa has been a staple since ancient times, known as the “gold of the Incas” for its value as an energy-dense, filling food. Today it’s treasured not just for its impressive nutritional profile but as a tasty and versatile alternative to heavier, bulkier grains.
If you like Bob’s Red Mill or Arrowhead Mills quinoa, then you’ll love this fluffy favorite from Vitacost®.
To cook quinoa, rinse and combine one cup of quinoa with two cups of water in a medium-sized pot. Bring water to boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer until water is absorbed. Fluff with a fork and enjoy as a side dish or use in your favorite recipes.
