Why is quinoa great in a salad?
In my opinion, quinoa is crazily underrated! It’s rich in fibre and protein, as well as being packed with those body loving antioxidants. It’s gluten free and a great lower carb alternative to other grains, or as a more nourishing choice for those of you who are more health conscious.
Health benefits aside, quinoa has a delicious fluffy texture, which in my opinion is way better than things like rice or couscous.
The secret to perfectly fluffy quinoa is to steam it for 5 minutes by covering the pan after it’s absorbed all the water. Just gently fluff with a fork to reveal that light, fluffy texture.
I hope you enjoy this one as much as I did. Let me know in the comments below.
