QUINOA, HOW TO USE
To start using quinoa, it is important to wash the seeds beforehand, rubbing them gently with your hands, under water, so that the layer of saponins that covers the seeds is removed and, if left there, would provide a flavor. bitter.
We must be careful given the smallness of the seed and we can do this operation on a sieve. We should not soak, but wash and rinse.
Later, we boil as if it were rice, for 15 to 20 minutes or until the seed opens. Strain and ready to use.
Before consuming it, it is washed to remove the saponin, a kind of soap attached to the shell. This water is not thrown away because it constitutes a liquid soap with which the indigenous people washed their bodies and clothes. Once washed with its grains, delicious salt or sweet, solid or liquid dishes can be prepared (Prieto, 1996). It is consumed like rice, in grain; its tender leaves are eaten stewed like chard and spinach; its stem and green leaves are used as a salad; soups or mazamorras were also made; rolls and cookies are made with its powder; chicha was also prepared with the mishque or sweet liquid from the penco. You can also use its roots.
