I was thinking I needed to get cheesecloth. Thanks for the suggestion/confirmation.

Ah, isn't it interesting how when we are eating healthier we end up needing kitchen items that aren't as common in a modern kitchen.

I rinse in a bowl of water and when I put them through my big holed strainer I use a thin kitchen towel. You can also use cheesecloth.

I started using this method when I started making soy milk and it was the best way I could figure out to separate the milk and retain everything else to use as a soy flour.

Just a dork trying to get healthier. I can also be found at or my prenatal blog

You can put the grains in a large bowl, add water, swish around with your hands & pour out as much water as you can. You might want to repeat a couple of times to make sure it's rinsed well. Otherwise, maybe invest in fine mesh strainer, it comes in handy & it's inexpensive.

Okay, now I feel like this is a REALLY silly question, but how do you guys rinse your Quinoa? The holes in my strainer are too large to do it there, because the grains will go right through.

So after making some again last night I feel compelled to ask what everyone else does! They don't sell pre-rinsed at my grocery store, so I need to come up with a good solution.

Thanks in advance!
