Far from Dirty Quinoa

  • ½ C Quinoa, rinsed
  • 1 C Purified Water
  • 1 Carrot, coined ¼ inch
  • 3 Baby Bokchoy, chopped ½ inch
  • ¼ C Wood Ear Mushrooms, chopped fine (optional)
  • ½ Tbsp Lemon Peel, zested or finely julienned
  • 1 Tbsp Chinese Black Vinegar
  • ½ tsp Sea Salt

Rinse your Quinoa 2-3 times in a bowl to wash away bitter coating on the fruit before cooking (yes, technically a fruit and not a grain). In a medium pot, bring quinoa and cold water to a boil, and then turn heat down to a simmer. Once at a simmer stir in vegetables and vinegar, then cover pot with lid for 8-12 minutes until quinoa becomes translucent. When cooked through, remove pot from burner and fold in sea salt.
