Better breakfast month! Quinoa, it's a super grain! Unlike wheat or rice, quinoa is a complete protein - containing all eight of the essential amino acids. It has been recognised by the United Nations as a supercrop for its health benefits: packed with dietary fibre, phosphorus, magnesium and iron. It is also gluten-free and easy to digest. The facts suggest it is close to a perfect ingredient as you can get. Easy to prepare. Quinoa can be prepared much like rice. It should usually be rinsed or soaked before use to remove its bitter coating, so check packet instructions. Bring two cups of water to the boil to one cup of grain, cover, simmer and cook for approximately 15 minutes or so, once cooked you can store it in the fridge in an airtight container for a few days. Chuck some fruit on for a high protein fruit salad or add some milk for an alternative to oats, you can top it with almost anything.
