We cannot deny the benefits of this little grain. Quinoa is rich in Protein. It has more fiber than any other grain. You can get Iron, magnesium from Quinoa. It is a great addition to your healthy weight loss diet plan.
After reading so many benefits of Quinoa, I thought to try my hand at it. I am using it most of the time in my salads.
I will be sharing few Quick Quinoa Salad Recipes with you in my coming posts as well.
Let us start with a simple Quinoa salad that has only four ingredients.
How to boil quinoa?
Wash quinoa under running water for a couple of minutes. Add ½ cup of it to two cups of water and let it boil on high flame for about 3 minutes then make the flame low and let quinoa cook properly. It will soak all water. If water is left then drain it.
Small white circles will appear at the edges of grain and it’s an indication that quinoa is ready.

I have added Ginger as well in this quinoa salad but if you do not like the taste, no worries.
