How to cook: Rinse grains before cooking. Using two cups of liquid per cup of Quinoa, combine liquid and Ouinoa in a saucepan or rice cooler. Bring the mixture to a vigorous boil, then lower heat and simmer, covered, for about 15-20 minutes or until Quinoa is tender but still chewy. Allow to sit for 5 minutes before serving. Ready in about 15 min. Quinoa Salad: 1 cup Nature's Earthly Choice™ Quinoa, rinsed. 1 medium sweet potato, peeled and cut into ½-inch cubes. 3½ tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided. 1/3 cup pine nuts. 4 teaspoons apple cider vinegar. 2 teaspoons honey. ¼ teaspoon salt. ½ teaspoon ground black pepper. ½ teaspoon ground cumin. ½ teaspoon cinnamon. 1/3 cup dried cranberries. 4 scallions, sliced. Preheat oven to 400°F. Place the Quinoa into a small saucepan and add 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 15 minutes, or until the water is absorbed. Turn off the heat and let Quinoa sit covered. Place the sweet potato cubes into a roasting pan and toss with ½ tablespoon of the olive oil. Bake for 25 minutes, or until you can just pierce the cubes with a fork. Set aside. Place the pine nuts into a small pan over medium heat until lightly toasted, stirring often. Set aside. In a small bowl, place the remaining three tablespoons olive oil, vinegar, honey, salt, pepper, cumin and cinnamon. Whisk well. When the Quinoa is dry, use a whisk to break apart the seeds and place into a large bowl. Add half the vinaigrette and mix with the whisk. Add more to taste.
