Quinoa is delicious cold tossed through a salad, or hot served with a stir-fry, stew or casserole. You can use Quinoa similar to how you use rice. Also try adding it to soups, frittatas or vegie patties. Quinoa flour can be used for baking gluten-free cakes, muffins, cookies, pancakes and breads.

Quinoa is the best option for raw grain cooking, as soups, side dishes accompanying fish, meat or poultry, hot and cold salads and its quantity increases after cooking the grains.
To prepare Quinoa make sure you rinse the grain well first to wash off its bitter coating. Bring 2 cups of water to boil and add 1 cup of Quinoa. Reduce heat to low, and cook covered for 10-15 minutes, or until tender but still slightly crunchy.
