Quinoa is an ancient cereal grain that grows in the Andes Mountains of South America, and has been cultivated in the region for more than 5000 years. Locally referred to as the mother grain and as a protein powerhouse, it kept the Incan armies strong and robust. Quinoa is nutritionally charged and is considered one of the best sources of protein and amino acids by the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations.
A great vegetarian alternative, red quinoa, as well as being particularly nutritious, is a light grain with a delicate taste.
Basic Cooking: One cup of quinoa for 2 people. Rinse the quinoa thoroughly and drain. Add one cup of quinoa to 2 cups of water in a saucepan. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and let simmer until all the water has evaporated (approximately 15 minutes). For best results, add a pinch of salt before serving.
