Why rinse well the Quinoa?

Why rinse quinoa? Rinsing removes quinoa's natural coating, called saponin, which can make it taste bitter or soapy. Although boxed quinoa is often pre-rinsed, it doesn't hurt to give the seeds an additional rinse at home. Some cookbooks suggest soaking the quinoa but, in our experience, this is unnecessary.


INGREDIERNTS

1 cup quinoa, regular, the white color one
Blue diamond almond milk, vanilla flavor
Brown sugar to taste (I use the Splenda brown sugar blend)
Cinnamon to taste
Bing dried cherries

DIRECTIONS

Rinse well the quinoa, to get rid of the bitter saponin coating.

Bring quinoa to a boil, together with cherries, brown sugar and cinnamon. Bring to a simmer, and cook until done. When done, add a little more almond milk.

You may try to do it in the slow cooker. It will just take longer.
If you have a steamer and know how to use it, that's the best choice (I don't know how to steam quinoa in a steamer that I don't have....) That is how they cooked it in the resturant.
Absolutely delicious!
