How to Boil Quinoa?

You can often hear them call quinoa the queen of grainy foods. This is due to its unique composition, which combines all of the essential amino acids, has a high protein balance, it's gluten-free and is also extremely tasty.

Although quinoa is a traditional food of the indigenous people of South America, it has recently become more and more popular in our country and more and more cooks are looking for quinoa recipes.

Usually in most recipes, quinoa is boiled and it can easily be used as a substitute for rice, couscous or grits.

Boiling quinoa is pretty easy. First, the quinoa seeds must be rinsed under running water very well, after which they are covered with water in a ratio of quinoa/water 1:2. The boiling time for quinoa is about 15-20 minutes on low heat, during which time the grainy plant increases its volume 4 times.

If you are one of those cooks who have decided to put quinoa dishes on their table, we can offer recipes for quinoa salad, quinoa patties and even tabbouleh salad with quinoa.
