Sides

Great on it's own or as an accompaniment to my Soda Bread recipe. Looking for some protein? You can add some ground beef to this recipe (my mom often did, although I prefer it without). Watch me make it here.

Quinoa is pretty easy to make but it can taste bland to some. A few simple ingredients can transform quinoa into a flavourful but still healthy addition to any meal. Watch me make it here.

Easy Quinoa with Turmeric

Prep Time: 2 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Easy Quinoa with Turmeric

Ingredients

  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 1.5 cups salt-free stock, vegetable/beef/chicken
  • 1/2 tsp salt, or omit
  • black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 - 1 tsp turmeric powder

Instructions

  1. Go through your dry quinoa and remove any debris.
  2. Rinse under cold, running water until the water runs clear.
  3. Place in a pot or deep pan, on medium-high heat.
  4. Add spices and stock. Stir.
  5. Cover and bring quinoa to a boil. Reduce heat to low, partly covered.
  6. Will take about 15 minutes.
  7. You want the liquid to be completely evaporated.
  8. You can check around the 12 minute mark, by gently scraping a spoon across the bottom of the pot. You will see how much liquid is left.
  9. When the liquid is evaporated, remove the pot from the burner & cover.
  10. Let the quinoa sit for 10-15 minutes, covered.
  11. Fluff with a fork or spoon. Serve hot, warm or cold.

Notes

Add any spice that you like.

Omit the salt for salt free.

Use salted stock & omit the salt addition.

Use black or red quinoa or a mix of all three. The mix is my favourite way to eat quinoa.
