If you try to eat healthy, you may want to try quinoa. It is a delicious cuisine, that experts everywhere have judged a “super food”. He was also called a “super grain” even if it’s not actually a grain. It is rather a tiny seed with plants such as beets, Swiss Chard and spinach. The seed and quinoa leaves can be eaten, although only the seed is widely available.
Quinoa cooking is very simple and can be accomplished by anyone can cook rice. In fact, quinoa cooking is much easier than cooking rice because quinoa does not stick in the way rice is rice.
There are several methods you can learn if you want to know how to cook quinoa perfectly. One thing you need to remember is that it must be carefully rinsed before cooking. Once you rinsed your quinoa, here are three cooking methods that you can try.
Cooking on the hob
While most recipes for Cooking Quinoa call one to two ratio between seed and liquid, I think that better value for money is one to one and a half. Bring the quinoa and the liquid simmer, then reduce to low. Cook covered for 25 minutes or until the water is absorbed. Allow to stay covered for another five minutes. Fluff and serve.
Cooking for salad
I like using a slightly different method when cooking quinoa to use for a quinoa salad. It’s a bit more involved, but it provides a seed that is perfect for salad because it is a little firmer. It also holds in the refrigerator for a few days.
Use a quinoa party and two liquid parts. Bring the liquid to a boil and add the quinoa. Boil, discovered, for ten minutes. Remove heat and Dragez your quinoa into a fine metal sticky. Rinse under cold water. Bring fresh water to a boil in a pot and place the quinoa on top of it in the strainer. Make sure the strainer is not submerged in the water. Place a clean kitchen towel on the quinoa and cover a lid. Steam the quinoa for 10 minutes. Pay attention to steam when removing the lid and the crockery cloth.
Quinoa baked cooking
Most people do not realize that you can cook quinoa in the oven to be used as a crunchy filling for yogurt and fruits. To do this, you will want to preheat the oven to 375. Combine a cup of quinoa with 1 tablespoon of agave nectar and 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes until slightly brown. You will want to move the quinoa every five minutes.
