Organic Antique White Quinoa
12oz / 1lb
Lundberg Family Farms is proud to present American-grown Antique White Quinoa, an incredible grain providing all nine essential amino acids as well as a good source of protein and dietary fiber. As Antique White Quinoa matures in the field, the plant turns to shades of fiery red and orange. The plant produces a soft, off-white seed that is mildly sweet to the taste and cooks up fluffy and soft in 15 minutes. It makes a great meal or side dish, or can be used as a base to create your own special recipes. Enjoy!
- In a fine mesh sieve, thoroughly rinse 1 cup of quinoa under cold water until the water runs clear.
- Place quinoa in a medium saucepan with 11⁄4 cups water or broth and bring to a fast simmer.
- Cover with a tight-fitting lid. Reduce heat to maintain a low simmer and cook for 15 minutes.
- Remove from heat (keep covered) and steam for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and serve.
*If the quinoa is too firm at the end of cooking, it may be necessary to add 1-2 Tbsp. liquid and cook longer.
**Quinoa can be prepared in a rice cooker following the same quinoa to water ratios as above.
