Ingredients

Organic Royal Black Quinoa (100%).

Directions

Cooking: 1 cup quinoa + 1-1/2 cup liquid = 4 servings. Rinse quinoa under cold water until water runs clear. Place quinoa and water or stock in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover and cook until liquid is absorbed and germ has spiraled out, about 20 minutes. Flavor Tip: Before adding liquid, saute quinoa in pan with a dash of olive oil until slightly toasted, about five minutes.
