Cooking Quinoa

Cooking quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) is so easy. Really it is. Easier than cooking rice. Be sure to rinse your quinoa in a fine mesh strainer. If you do not have one, put a coffee filter in a standard strainer to rinse. Just be careful not to spill the quinoa.

Quinoa is really good for you too. What is it you ask??!! Well, it's the seed of a grain to put it simply. It is a complete protein as well. Loaded with magnesium, potassium, vitamin E, fiber and is an excellent source of iron.

It is quite versatile too. I use it for everything from breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. For breakfast, you can cook it in almond or coconut milk and treat it like hot cereal. For lunch and dinner, oh the options are endless. You can even make milk with it. My current favorite is quinoa with black beans and salsa. I'll do a video and recipe on that later. 

So, this is my first video, EVER. My fabulous friend Angie has been telling me for a very, very, very long time that I needed to start making videos with all of my creations. Today, I finally got my butt in gear and did it. It is short and sweet, just the way I like my videos. Hope you enjoy it.
