Sprouting Quinoa

Sprouting quinoa is super easy and will aid in your body's digestion of this powerful super-gran. It is higher in nutrition than other seeds or grains. You pronounce it "Keen-wah."
You can read about quinoa HERE.

So, to try sprouting quinoa, place one cup of seeds in a small stainless steel mesh strainer. Run it under water until it is free of bubbles.
Rest the strainer onto of a glass bowl and fill the bowl full of filtered water. Let the quinoa soak for 30 minutes.
Rinse again, and empty water from the glass bowl. Set the strainer again over the empty bowl and cover the quinoa with a damp towel. Let sit, out of sunlight, for 8-12 hours.
Rinse again and repeat the last step.
Rinse and now your quinoa is ready to use. You can cook it at a low temp with water on the stove (half the water recommended on the quinoa bag), or you can store it in the fridge for around a week.
Add some quinoa to your salad, fruit salad oatmeal...whatever. I love quinoa!
