Preparation, Uses, & Tips
Combine small amounts of quinoa flour in baked goods. Cook quinoa in orange juice and serve it with honey and toasted pecans as a breakfast cereal. Or, cook it with cubed butternut squash for a hearty winter porridge. Note: The outer part of quinoa is coated with saponin, a sticky, bitter-tasting substance that protects it in growing but can cause indigestion. Rinse quinoa well in cool water before cooking to remove the saponin.
