Activating Quinoa 

I have heard that activating seeds makes them even healthier. Hence I thought I would try. I poured red quinoa in a bowl and covered in cold water and then let it stand for 24 hours.

The next day I rinsed it well and then cooked it as per packet instructions (about 20 min for red quinoa). I added a teaspoon of bullion powder and some herb salt. You can see in the picture below, it has sprouted a little.

The cooked quinoa I keep in the fridge for up to a week and have with stews, curries, salads,  roasted vegetables etc. Very handy and very tasty, I must admit I am not keen on the smell of quinoa but it tastes great.

    • Hm good point … Tasted good and I felt proud of myself hence hopefully both psychological and physical benefits. Will check tomorrow if my coat is shinier. X
