Thrive Quinoa is gluten-free and USDA-certified organic. It is unique because although it is sometimes considered as a grain, it is actually closely related to leafy green spinach, making quinoa rich in both amino acids and protein. When cooked, quinoa can become a delicious hot cereal, pasta, or side dish.
Rinse 1 cup Quinoa in a strainer. Add Quinoa and 1/2 tsp. salt to 2 cups boiling water and simmer covered for 15-18 minutes until tender. Drain and rinse after cooking.
