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.
- 1 cup quinoa
- 2 cups of water
- Firstly, rinse your quinoa by placing it in a strainer and put it under running water.
- Combine water and quinoa in a pot, and put on the stove on medium to high heat.
- 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.
- 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
