3 Secrets to Make Quinoa Taste Good
Quinoa is gluten-free, high in fiber, protein, and minerals, and a rare complete protein (meaning it contains all nine essential amino acids), making it a great plant-based protein source for everyone but especially those with celiac disease, gluten intolerance, vegetarians, and vegans.
In this episode of Fix My Recipe, Laura gives you the three secrets (and the science behind them) to making quinoa taste good. You'll learn:
- The best way to remove the natural coating of saponins that leaves a bitter, soapy taste in your mouth if it’s not washed away. This is one of the top reasons a lot of people think they don’t like quinoa.
- An easy way to make quinoa taste roasted. Like nuts, quinoa tastes better when it has a roasted flavor.
- Use the third secret to make your quinoa taste sweet. Add it to your morning oatmeal, serve it with berries, mix it into your pancake batter, or even use it to make this delicious looking granola.
