Quick & Easy weeknights: Flavorful Quinoa

Standard

Quinoa is a great way to add whole grains to any meal, and is much healthier than pastas as a side dish!

Since this is a healthy whole grain, serve it up..and eat it up!

Add quinoa to any dish that is needing a side, or some healthy grains.

Cooking Quinoa is as easy as pasta, but without any flavor added when cooking, it’s a rather bland grain. It does have a small nutty flavor.

Add a cup of Quinoa to a cup and a half of water and simmer for 20 minutes, or untill all the water has evaporated. The grains should pop open, and release their little sprout. Add boilon cubes, wild mushroom gravy, or even a half a cup of tomato paste to the water in order to add some flavor!

Enjoy along with your favorite veggies! Serve hot!
