Don’t Toast Your Quinoa

A recent study on different ways of cooking quinoa has revealed that toasting your quinoa prior to cooking can actually decrease the nutritional value. 

You can read the publication here (if you enjoy reading scientific papers) but I’ll give you the bottom line: the best way to prepare your quinoa for maximum nutritional value is to rinse it well, don’t toast it, and cook it under pressure. 

Here’s a great recipe that uses a wonderful blend of Mexican-inspired seasonings.
