Quinoa is a versatile ingredient that can be used in many dishes, such as salads, stir-fries, and even as a substitute for rice or pasta. Organic products are grown without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Choosing organic foods is believed to promote a healthier lifestyle and protect the environment.
To cook the quinoa, rinse it thoroughly under cold water to remove any bitterness. Then, add the quinoa to a pot with water in a 2:1 ratio (for every 1 cup of quinoa, add 2 cups of water). Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce the heat to low, cover the pot, and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until the water is absorbed.
