Perfect Quinoa 

Quinoa is an staple to my weekly prep. I usually will cook 1 cup and keep it in the fridge so that I can dress it as I wish or add it to salads during the week.

A fun fact about quinoa is that it’s a complete protein. Meaning that it contains all 9 of the essential amino acids, which makes it a unique grain and a vegan friendly source of protein.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups of water

Instructions

  1. Firstly, rinse your quinoa by placing it in a strainer and put it under running water.
  2. Combine water and quinoa in a pot, and put on the stove on medium to high heat.
  3. Let the water come to a boil for 1-2 minutes, turn down to low heat and place a lid on the pot. Allow the water to absorb into the quinoa.
  4. Once the water is absorbed, turn the heat off remove from the heat but leave the lid on the pot for another 10-15 minutes. Once done fluff with a fork
