- Earth Shift tricolor quinoa is a great gluten-free alternative to grains. It tastes amazing with vegetables, or even by itself with a little soy sauce alternative. Quinoa is a good source of Magnesium, Phosphorus, and Iron, as well as being a good source of fiber. It has 5 grams of protein per serving and can be utilized as a rice would in any recipe.
- Our quinoa is grown in very mineral-rich volcanic soil, which is why it is full of nutrients and has a vast essential amino acid profile. Pesticides are not required for quinoa crops because the seeds have a natural coating of saponins, which are bitter and deter pests.
- First, measure out the dry quinoa. The proportion of dry quinoa to cooked quinoa is about 1:3, so 1 cup of dried quinoa will cook up to be about 3 cups.
- Rinse the quinoa well under cold water and drain. It’s handy to use a fine mesh sieve for rinsing. Put the rinsed quinoa into a saucepan and add cold water. The quinoa to water ratio is 1:2. In other words, use 2 cups of water for every cup of quinoa.
- Toss in a dash of himalayan salt.
- Cover and bring to a boil. As soon as it starts to boil, turn the heat down to a simmer, and set the lid just ajar, to prevent boiling over. Simmer for 15-20 minutes.
- The quinoa goes a bit transparent when it’s cooked, except for a little spiral sprout. If the quinoa is tender but there’s excess water in the bottom of the saucepan just leave the lid off completely for a few minutes until the water evaporates. When done turn off the heat, put the lid on and let sit for about 5 minutes.
- Use a fork to fluff up the quinoa and serve.
