I really love this product, it reaches all of my expectations.
Delicious, easy to make and low fat. How great is that? Well not that all of my recipes are low fat. In fact, very few of them really are low fat. But, quinoa is one of my go to sides when I want to keep down the calorie count and enjoy my meal.
Trader Joe's Organic Red Quinoa is sold on the dry goods shelf. Is there really a dry goods shelf any longer? ;) I must be dating myself. Anyway, the directions say to add 1 cup of dried, rinsed quinoa to 2 cups of water. I add a teaspoon of butter and a teaspoon of salt. I also cut down on the water and only put in 1&1/2 cups. Bring to a boil, place a lid on the pan and turn it to low. It may say medium low, but either will do. If after 15-20 minutes you have extra water in the pan just drain it and let sit on the stove with the burner turned off for about 15 minuts. I added 2 stalks of fresh green onion and a quarter cup of chopped, fresh cilantro. It's delicious, just yummy!
Oh, I have no affliation with Trader Joe's either. I am just a consumer who likes a good product and thought I'd share this one.
Give it a try and enjoy ~
