Fluffy Quinoa

Quinoa is a versatile Future 50 Food with a pleasantly mild, nutty flavour and fluffy texture.

Quinoa is a versatile Future 50 Food with a pleasantly mild, nutty flavour and fluffy texture. It’s also healthy and high carb, making it the perfect alternative to pasta! Cooking it for maximum tastiness isn’t difficult, it just takes a few steps.

First, rinse the quinoa under cold water to remove any bitter or soapy tastes. Then, add 1 cup of quinoa, followed by two cups of water, to a medium sized saucepan on a high heat. 

Give your quinoa a flavourful boost by adding a generous pinch of Knorr Seasoning before the water comes to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat and let simmer for 12-15 minutes. Can’t see any more water? It’s ready! Fluff it up with a fork, and serve!

Cooked quinoa can be put to use in a broad range of delicious dishes. You can serve this Future 50 Food hot in a light and creamy quinotto (risotto with quinoa), or toss it cooled with some fresh greens for a wholesome salad or in a scrummy chicken wrap.
