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
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
Go through your dry quinoa and remove any debris.
Rinse under cold, running water until the water runs clear.
Place in a pot or deep pan, on medium-high heat.
Add spices and stock. Stir.
Cover and bring quinoa to a boil. Reduce heat to low, partly covered.
Will take about 15 minutes.
You want the liquid to be completely evaporated.
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.
When the liquid is evaporated, remove the pot from the burner & cover.
Let the quinoa sit for 10-15 minutes, covered.
Fluff with a fork or spoon. Serve hot, warm or cold.
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.
