Instructions
  1. Rinse the quinoa very well. Put in a large saucepan with the water, adding a pinch of salt.
  2. Cook on high for 5 minutes, until the water comes to the boil. Then reduce the water to a simmer and cook for a further 20-25 minutes. Put a lid on the pan, as this will help the grains to steam, without all the water boiling away, as you can burn the pan.
  3. The grains should be puffed up and soft, with a slight nutty bite when cooked. Just run a fork through to separate.
  4. You can serve the quinoa hot or cold. Cooked quinoa stays fresh for up to a week in the fridge, or 8 months in the freezer.
Recipe Notes

In their natural state, the seeds have a coating of bitter-tasting saponins, making them unpalatable, so ensure that the grains are thoroughly rinsed, before cooking.  The protein content per 100 calories is higher than brown rice, potatoes, barley and millet.
