As I promised a long, long time ago…here’s how I prepare my quinoa!
To start with, I put it in the rice cooker in a half & half mixture of 1 cup quinoa, 1 cup sprouted beans (the sprouted beans give it so much more flavour).
Then, I chop up a whole bunch of veggies in small pieces:
- red, green, yellow peppers
- sesame seed paste (i.e. tahini)
- soy sauce
- heaps and heaps of ground black pepper
- I even put a little kombu in (super healthy, and a great flavouring…but totally optional)
I mix all the veggies up together, and when the quinoa is done cooking, I add it all in.
The rice cooker makes it nice and soft, and swells up a lot larger, too! I far prefer this over cooking quinoa on the stove, and I’ve tried a lot of quinoa recipes that use vinegar and oil, but I absolutely love the mild flavour that I get with this one!
