How to wash quinoa

In order to cook and eat quinoa, it is necessary that it be washed well before, since it has elements that are harmful to the health of animals and humans. Be very careful with following a rigorous procedure since, if it is not done, its intake can cause serious problems. Follow our advice on how to wash quinoa and you can enjoy all the flavor of this rich food.

Steps to follow:

1. Before cooking the quinoa, you must submit it to a rigorous wash that will allow you to rid it of all toxic substances. For this, a good container and natural water are the best indicated and appropriate elements.

2. First of all, spread them out on a plate and watch it carefully. Pass your hand over it and detect the possible stones with which it may be mixed. Set them aside to begin the quinoa cleaning procedure.

3. Put them in a plate or container, fill it with water until it is covered, stir it well in this water and drain it, then cover it again with new water and carry out the same procedure. If possible, continue doing it 4-5 times to ensure a good and complete cleaning.

4. Next, fill the container with new water and let them sit for about an hour, without touching them or making them dizzy. In this way the water will exert a great cleaning on them.

5. Once the hour has passed, stir them well in this same water and throw it away. Put it to soak under the tap and again throw the water away.

6. Put a saucepan of water on the fire until it boils, at that time, add the quinoa. Let it rest in boiling water for 5 minutes, remove it and place it in a second saucepan of water that is supposedly boiling parallel to the previous one. Introduce and boil for approximately 15 minutes or until the grain opens.

7. Let the open grain rest in this boiling water. Then, strain and allow drying at room temperature. In this way you will have the quinoa clean and ready to cook to your liking without any health problems.
