The easiest way to prepare Quinoa!

  • Gluten Free
  • Medium



Super healthy Quinoa is gluten-free and rich in protein, zinc, fiber, antioxidants, rich in vitamins and minerals, simply brimming with many benefits for your health.  It is great to include in your healthy diet, as you can prepare sweet and savory meals from it. It is prepared in 15 minutes and you can cook it and store it in the refrigerator and have it on hand for when you need it as a quick meal or a meal to take to work or school.

 There are several varieties of quinoa and you can find it as white, red, black or a mix of all three.  If you have not used quinoa, I recommend that you start with white quinoa because it has a lighter taste.  What you need to know about quinoa is that it contains saponins, tannins and phytic acid, so it is necessary to wash it well before consuming it, because otherwise you may have stomach problems, and at the same time reduce the absorption of magnesium and iron.

 There are several ways to prepare quinoa with different ratios, but it is mainly prepared from quinoa and water.

 A preparation that always gives me a good result and the best ratio for a nice grain without becoming mushy is always 1:2.


 1 cup of quinoa

 2 cups of water

 1 tbsp olive oil

 a pinch of salt

Washing the quinoa should be in cold water and wash it in several waters until the water is completely clear.  The quinoa washed on this way is ready for preparation.

 Add a tablespoon of oil to a pot on the heat and add the drained quinoa, stir until all the liquid evaporates.  Continue mixing until you hear the grains pop, stir about half a minute.  Then pour water over the quinoa and add a pinch of salt.  Bring to a boil over high heat and reduce heat to medium-low. Boil the quinoa for five minutes, covered.  Turn off the stove and let the quinoa sit, covered, for 10 to 15 minutes.  In this way, it will absorb all the liquid and the grain will remain whole and you will not have a mushy structure.

 Keep it in the refrigerator and use it to prepare various meals.

I suggest a quick preparation of a light quinoa salad with arugula, tomatoes and cheese of your choice.  You can find the link on the page.

 Have a good appetite!
