The simplest way to cook quinoa is to boil it for 12-15 minutes in three times the volume of water. So for every 100g quinoa, add 300ml water. Once cooked, try serving it in place of rice alongside a curry or casserole.
It’s easy and quick to cook and the subtle nutty flavour lends itself well to both savoury dishes like salads or a binding ingredient for veggie burgers, but also in sweet recipes like porridge. For best results, we would always recommend rinsing the quinoa first in cold water. Put the required amount in a sieve and run it under a cold tap until the water runs clear. This washes off some of the excess starch and stops it sticking together once cooked. If you want to add extra flavour, why not try boiling the quinoa in chicken or vegetable stock (use the same volume as water) or for a porridge, you can sub out some of the water for the equivalent amount of almond or oat milk.
