:chef:This thread is specifically for Quinoa (pronounced Keen-wa). I love it as its so healthy for you. Gluten free and is easy to fix. Anyone may add recipes, as we'd all love to learn from others. Basic recipe for cooking Quinoa. All recipes basically call for cooked Quinoa, so to cook it add 2 cups water to 1 cup Quinoa. Use a pan or some are using the rice cooker in the microwave. Bring to boil and let boil until the water is gone. Fluff. There is a tiny ring around the grain. This will separate as it cooks. It's perfectly natural and is not to be removed. You try removing thousands of tiny rings. You can buy Quinoa from health food stores or departments. I have also seen it in the baking aisle with the specialty flours. Wal-mart carries it in this aisle. Bob's Red Mill is one brand, there are a couple of others too. I buy it on ebay. it costs about 6.00 a pound. I am not affiliated with any Quinoa board or do I profit from Quinoa sales in any way. I just am thrilled with a high quality, tasty, natural food.
