Quinoa (How to toast quinoa)

How to toast quinoa

thoroughly rinse your quinoa to rid it of its natural coating of saponins, which is known to leave a soapy, bitter taste.

  • Heat a big, heavy sauté pan on medium low.
  • Add (or leave) some water to the quinoa so that it is moist, and put a cup of the wet quinoa into the heated pan. (Make sure not to over-crowd.)
  • Using a wire whisk, quickly stir the quinoa around in the pan as it begins to toast.
  • Once the water is absorbed and the quinoa begins to pop, you will know that it is drying out.
    Keep whisking until the grains of quinoa start to brown.
    It will transform before your eyes and begin to smell nutty – and that’s when you know that your quinoa is toasted.
