Tip: For nutritional information on all the ingredients in Quinoa as Cereal just click on each ingredient name. Then adjust the serving size for any Quinoa as Cereal ingredient with the serving size tool in the nutrition facts area to the right to see how you can save calories, carbs and more.
Rinse 1 cup uncooked quinoa for 3 minutes in room temperature water.
Boil 2 cups of water or broth (chicken, beef etc.)
Drain the quinoa and add to the boiling water. You can season if desired but I don't.
Once it returns to a boil, turn heat to low and simmer for 15 - 20 minutes (I do it for 17). This will give you appx 5 servings of the cereal as I make it. Quinoa can also be used as a whole grain substitute for rice.
You can eat quinoa hot or cold. I use cold for this recipe using 1 cup of the cooked quinoa, half a medium apple cut up with skin, a few raisins, some sunflower seeds and cinnamon as desired.
Total Calories - 320 I'm not sure why it shows as significantly less.
