How To Cook Quinoa in the Thermomix

Monday, 29 April 2019
Hello Dear Reader,

Last Thursday evening I made a fabulous Curried, Savoury Mince and instead of rice I served Quinoa with it, for a change. I have been using my Thermomix to cook steamed rice in and the results are fantastic, the rice is always light and fluffy. I love Quinoa too and have always had good results using this method but it is even better in the Thermomix. Really ultra light and fluffy, non soggy, Quinoa grains.

It is as simple as simple can be, start by rinsing the Quinoa really well, I do this with a fine sieve over a bucket to catch all the rinsing water. It takes a lot of water to rinse Quinoa and I hate to waste that much water.

I then let the Quinoa soak in some water for 10 to 15 minutes just to soften the grain a little before steaming.

Drain the Quinoa well and transfer to the steaming basket of the Thermomix

Cook for 12 minutes/Varoma/Speed 1

Once it has finished it's first steaming, give it a gentle but through mix

Cook again for 12 minutes/Varoma/Speed 2

Once finished it's second steam, let rest for another 5 minutes with the TM measuring cup off to let the steam escape, this will ensure perfectly cooked, really light and super fluffy Quinoa

What is your favourite grain or side to serve with a savoury dish?

Have a lovely day,
