Red Quinoa
 
Description

A True Food Kitchen restaurant exclusive! Not only is quinoa a nutritional powerhouse, but it has a delightful nutty flavor that is delicious on its own, or with mild seasoning and simple vegetables as in this recipe. Be sure to wash your quinoa well, as its natural saponin coating is quite bitter, and is not always fully removed during processing.

Food as Medicine
Quinoa is high in protein, and the protein it contains is complete, which means it includes all nine essential amino acids.

 
Ingredients

4 cups red quinoa
1 cup yellow onion, diced
1 cup celery, diced
8 cups water
2 tablespoons salt (or to taste)
3 sprigs fresh oregano

 
Instructions

Sauté onions and celery. Season with salt, pepper and oregano.
Add quinoa and water. Cover and boil on medium heat for about 25 minutes until cooked and fluffy.
