How to cook perfectly fluffy quinoa


18 Jul 2019

Quinoa is a versatile Knorr 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 at all. Master these few simple steps and serve perfectly fluffy quinoa every time! 

Cooking instructions

First, rinse the quinoa under cold water to remove any bitter or soapy tastes, then add 1 cup of quinoa and two cups of water to a medium sized saucepan on a high heat. Give your quinoa a flavourful boost by adding a Knorr Stock Pot before the water comes to a boil.

Once boiling, reduce the heat and allow to simmer for 12-15 minutes. Once all the water has boiled off, your quinoa is ready. Fluff it up with a fork, and serve!

Recipe inspiration

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

You can buy it from any good retailer.
