tips

HOW TO TOAST QUINOA
Toasting adds a deeper flavor and crunchier texture to quinoa. After rinsing quinoa, drain well. Heat a large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat. Add drained quinoa. Cook until quinoa dries out and becomes golden brown, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Transfer to bowl and continue as directed.
STORAGE KNOW-HOW
Cover and refrigerate any leftovers up to 4 days.
