Step 1

If using sprouted quinoa, add quinoa to a small saucepan and toast over medium heat for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, being careful not to burn. If using quinoa that's not sprouted and you'd like soaking instructions, see notes*. Otherwise, proceed to step 2.

Step 2

Then add salt, curry powder (optional), and water and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to a simmer, cover, and cook for 20 minutes or until all water is absorbed. Be sure the quinoa isn't boiling, but cooking at a gentle simmer.

Step 3

Set aside off heat, uncovered, to cool - at least 10 minutes. Then it's perfect for use in things like salads, bowls, falafel, spring rolls, veggie burgers, stir-fries, and more!

Step 4

Store cooled leftovers in the refrigerator up to 5-6 days, or in the freezer up to 1 month.
