    just cook it in a pot like you would rice.
    1 part quinoa
    2 parts water

    bring to a boil. turn to medium with lid on. let it simmer until its absorbed the water basically

    It has a nutty flavor, I thought it was good when I tried it. You can use it as a rice substitute or you can even make desserts with it, so it would be a "healthy" dessert maybe (well, just a reason to eat something nice).

    do you have any solid nutrition data on it? every google link that comes up gives me something different.

    also, do growers usually remove the saponin before shipping to sellers?

    Use this when you want health-related info on food : http://www.whfoods.com/foodstoc.php
    There's a link with the nutrient profile at the end of the quinoa page : http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=nutrientprofile&dbid=143

    And there's Nutrition Data which is valuable : http://www.nutritiondata.com/facts-C00001-01c21U1.html
    It's all in the EDU :p

    My gf's sister used to make it regular and mix it with dishes instead of rice. Would always eat too much and feel/get bloated.
