How to Cook Quinoa

Hello, my friends welcome to my channel if you’re new here my name is Alyssa, and today I have got a really fun video for you, because I am going to show you how to make three different recipes, all that just use by the ingredients. So these are three five ingredient quinoa recipes. They are awesome for meal prep, they’re great as a side dish they’re great to serve with something like a stir-fry. As always, I’ve included all of the links to these individual recipes that are up on my blog. Those links are in the description box below for you. That includes more photos. It talks a little bit more about the recipe and it also, of course, includes the instructions and ingredient lists. So, like I mentioned, these are just five ingredients each they are so simple. You’Re going to love them, so let’s go ahead and dive in the first recipe that we’re gon na make is a lemon tumeric quinoa and we’re gon na start by just clicking our quinoa with some water. So it’s 1 cup of quinoa to 2 cups of water, bring it to a boil, cover it and simmer it for about 15 minutes.

Then, while that’s cooking, we are going to use the zest of one whole lemon. You can just zest that up once your quinoa is done, just remove the lid add in a tablespoon of coconut oil, some turmeric powder, some sea salt and your lemon zest and you’re just gon na stir this all together until it’s combined. I like to let this rest for about 5 minutes before I stir everything in just coz. I find it gets a little bit fluffier, but if you’re in a rush, you can absolutely just stir it in right away and then for serving. I love to serve this with some scallions some cilantro, and this goes with all types of dishes. Our second recipe is going to be a 5 ingredient, ginger miso quinoa. This again, we are just going to start by cooking our quinoa, it’s 1 cup of quinoa, with 2 cups of water. While that’s cooking, we can get the other ingredients together. The first thing that we’re gon na do is peel our ginger. I like to use a spoon to just peel the skin off and once you’ve peeled your ginger. You can just use a zester or a fine grater to grate it up so that it is easier to stir in and then we’re also going to prepare the miso. So you’re gon na add some water, with your miso paste into a small bowl and you’re. Just gon na stir this together until it forms kind of a sauce type consistency. This is just gon na help. Them me so get more incorporated more evenly incorporated into the quinoa and then again once the quinoa is done. Cooking, you’re, gon na add in some coconut oil, some ginger and that miso sauce and stir it all together. And then I actually also like to add in some tamari or some soy sauce. This just gives it another nice umami flavor. It makes a little bit saltier and it just kind of amps up the flavor. So do that as well and then for serving purposes. I love to serve this again with some cilantro and also some scallions and then some black sesame seeds. I know that’s more than five ingredients, but that’s just for presentation purposes. You don’t have to do that and then our last quinoa is a Mexican quinoa and we’re actually gon na start by cooking together some frozen corn, as well as some black beans and you’re, just basically cooking these until they are heated through then from there we’re going To add in our cooked quinoa, I like to start with cooked quinoa here, because I find that it doesn’t get as mushy.

So this is pre cooked quinoa. That’S been cooled as well as a cup of jarred salsa, as well as some cumin powder and what’s great about using jarred salsa is that it already has some flavorings in there. So it has some salt, some lime, some cilantro, and you really get all of that into this quinoa. So, instead of adding all of those ingredients separately, you can just use the jarred salsa and you’re gon na get all of those flavors. So just stir it all. Together until everything is heated through and you can serve it right away, I think that this makes a really great base for burrito bowls. Also, you can use it as a taco filling or you can just use it in with some greens as a salad, because you have the beans, you have some protein in there and it’s really filling and delicious for garnishing. I love to garnish with cilantro and lime juice again optional. I know that that increases the ingredient amount, but they are so delicious. You guys are gon na love this recipe. I can’t wait to see your recreations and there you have it. My friends. I hope you enjoyed today’s video and I hope you give these recipes to try they’re super simple, as you can see, but they’re also really great bases. They kind of act as a fun way for you to enhance your meals, you’re, adding in more protein, more fiber and more flavor, and they keep really well in the fridge. So you can make a big batch and you can have it all week long and I also love that they are customizable for different types of diets in your house. So if you have somebody that you live with that, isn’t necessarily vegan or vegetarian. That wants to include animal products. These are great base because they’re really simple, they’re really flavorful, but they can customize them and add whatever type of protein or ingredients that they want on top of it.
