WCT Apple Craisin Quinoa Recipe
Quinoa vs Rice:
Quinoa has been around for centuries and is considered the supergrain of the 21st century. It is one of the only grains that contains all NINE essential amino acids (Histidine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Lysine, Methionine, Phenylalanine, Threonine, Tryptophan, and Valine). Quinoa contains more than twice the amount of fiber than other grains, helping to prevent constipation, hemorrhoids, heart disease, diabetes, and hypercholesterolemia.
1 cup of quinoa
1 3/4 cups of water
1/4 cup of craisins
1 tsp of cinnamon
70 per 1/2 cup
Total Cook Time:
Step 1: Bring the water to a boil
Step 2: Add the quinoa and reduce the flame to "low." Cover the pot with a lid.
Step 3: When the majority of water has been absorbed, add in the cinnamon and mix.
Step 4: When all of the water has been absorbed, and the quinoa has developed an outer white ring, turn off the flame.
Step 5. Add the craisins and apple and mix

1 cup of uncooked quinoa yields about 3 cups of cooked quinoa. We recommend consuming 1/2 cup as the carbohydrate, therefore you will have 6 meals containing quinoa.
