organicexpert Quinoa Soak Time.
Prepping red organic quinoa by soaking it prior to cooking. This step improves flavour by helping remove the bitter saponin coating on this teeny tiny seed. Yup - it's a seed. I let it soak for at least 1 hour but you can let is soak as long as overnight.

  •   lilblu626 I agree. If the soak water is frothy, rinse and keep soaking. It makes the quinoa so much more digestible. 7d
  •   organicexpert Awesome tip- thanks @lilblu626 7d
  •   nourishednikki I feel like this is something that I should have known about! I'll try soaking next time for sure although I do love the taste of quinoa 7d
  •   lilblu626 It will start to sprout after about 4 hours. You can still cook it or let it sprout a few more hours and rinse and dried it for use as raw crunchies, much like sprouted buckwheat. 7d
  •   organicexpert Hi @nourishednikki I've also read about adding 2tbsp of raw organic apple cider vinegar to 2 cups of soaking water too. This helps improve the digest ability of the grain even more. There is soooo much to learn! 6d
  •   joannblondin Another tip is to dry roast the seeds before cooking (if you bought previously soaked and dehydrated Quinoa). It adds a great nutty flavour. You will need a bit more water and time when cooking as they take more time to absorb the water after the dry roast. 6d
  •   rawrkitchen Amazing 3d

organicexpert Pioneering postmodern architect and designer Michael Graves will be missed. 1934-2015

Michael Graves' design vision has brought much joy to many homes and lives. One of my favourite pieces is the Alessi kettle. Way back when I managed a design shoppe in Toronto, I sold hundreds of kettle with great pride.

organicexpert Lunch Time Design Inspiration

Munching on kale salad with organic basmati rice while thumbing through design mags from Australia and the UK.

Did you know rice contains arsenic? A recent Consumers Report shares the results of their research. It's an interesting read and gives good for thought.
