Quinoa is a high-protein, mineral-rich, gluten-free grain. It is an ideal replacement for white rice in recipes.
To cook, mix 1 cup quinoa with 2 cups water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer, cover, and cook for 15 minutes or until all the water is absorbed. Quinoa can also be sprouted in as little as 14 hours.
