directions

  • Rinse quinoa very well in cold water for a few minutes to remove its bitter outer layer.
  • In a saucepan add quinoa, water (or broth) and garlic. Bring to boil, stir and then reduce heat to low. Cover and cook for about 12 minutes until done.
  • While the quinoa cooks, mix together the ginger, tamari, agave nectar, lemon juice and sesame oil.
  • Once the quinoa is done, turn off the heat and stir in the tamari mixture. Cover again and let sit for about 5 minutes.
  • Stir again and sprinkle with the sesame seeds and green onions. Serve!

    Very tasty way to serve quinoa. Went well with chicken breasts. I used water, but would recommend using broth (as suggested as an option) for a little more flavor.

    We were real happy with the way this recipe came out. So easy & delicious I also top it off with fresh chopped cilantro.

    Great! Never had quinoa this way. I used broth instead of water, and it was very flavourful. Thanks for sharing!<br/>Made for Healthy Choices ABC.

    This came together very quickly and is delicious. My DH happened to make a red beans and salsa dish with supper and this was a surprisingly nice compliment to it. Thanks, magpie diner! Made for Veggie Recipe Swap 24, July 2010.
