Make Quinoa Flakes Your Best Alternative To Dried Oats

Organic quinoa flakes (pronounced keen-wah) was once called “the gold of the Incas” for increasing the stamina of Incan warriors. Today, plain oatmeal cookies can easily become quinoa cookies and some people even attest to the more filling nature of this South American grain.

Yes, quinoa flakes do require cooking. And the good news for people who prefer quick cereals is that cooking time is blissfully short, just around 90 seconds. Closely similar to rolled oats when uncooked, cooked quinoa flakes appear somewhat like wheat cereal or grits.

It may sound complicated to incorporate in your meals but cooking quinoa flakes is easy. You can prepare them on the stove top by bringing 1 cup of water to boil in a saucepan, adding 1/3 cup of quinoa flakes, and letting the quinoa cook for about 90 seconds. Turn off the heat and allow them to cool slightly. Let the mixture thicken.

For microwave cooking, however, you can combine 1 cup of water and 1/3 cup of quinoa flakes in a microwave-safe bowl that’s twice the volume of the serving size being prepared. Put on HIGH for 2 to 2-1/2 minutes until thickened and stir well before serving.

You can also enjoy a hot bowl of quinoa flakes as it will add great nutrition to your morning breakfast. It has no cholesterol, no sodium, no gluten, and contains about 10% of the daily requirement for dietary fiber. Although there are a few recipes for quinoa flakes available, you will find that it is in fact such a versatile food, that you can come up with your very own recipes pretty quickly and easily.

As well as breakfast, quinoa flakes can also be used for pancakes or waffles, as a coating for cooking fish or chicken, and for baking muffins or cookies.
