Quinoa is a wonderful grain used by the Aztecs, it is a complete protein. Quinoa is wonderful to cook with because it soaks up flavors well.
- 1/2 cup quinoa
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 tbs minced fresh ginger
- 1 tsp curry powder
- 1/2 tsp cumin
First let the quinoa soak in a bowl for 15 minutes. The grain has a protective coating and if it is not removed may cause you to be a little gassy.
After soaking put the quinoa and water into a pot and bring to a boil. After the water is boiling, bring it down to a simmer and add the remaining ingredients. Stir the ingredients around a bit, and let the quinoa cook. It cooks similar to rice, so when the water has been cooked away, the quinoa is ready!
