Heard that quinoa is all the rage in German kitchens? No wonder, because this versatile superfood is packed with nutrients and is gluten-free, making it an ideal addition to any diet. Quinoa is not a grain, but a nutty-tasting foxtail plant from the homeland of the Incas. Quinoa is a good choice for people with lactose intolerance or celiac disease, as well as vegetarians. Given its many health benefits, it's easy to see why quinoa has taken the culinary world by storm.

Whether savory or sweet, hot or cold, quinoa inspires endless culinary creations in the kitchen. And the possibilities are as varied as the grain itself! Quinoa can be made into pancakes, crepes, granola and much more, and can be used as a side dish or main course. The preparation is simple and similar to that of rice. It is cooked in salted water or broth, using twice as much liquid as quinoa. To improve the flavor, it is recommended to toast the quinoa seeds before cooking.

Quinoa can be combined with a variety of delicious spices to create a savory or sweet dish full of flavor. Add vegetable or chicken broth to the cooking water, or add a dash of soy sauce, tomato juice or red wine for a more complex flavor. Turmeric powder not only adds flavor, but also turns white quinoa bright yellow, making it visually appealing. If you like it sweet, you can also cook quinoa in milk or coconut milk and sweeten it with a sweetener such as honey or coconut blossom sugar, as well as some cinnamon or cardamom.

Cooked quinoa will keep fresh in the refrigerator for several days, making it ideal for meal prep. Simply cook a larger amount in advance and you have a versatile base that can be used to create delicious dishes in no time. Quinoa has an amazing taste and is rich in nutrients. Try it out and find out for yourself why quinoa is an indispensable part of the kitchen!
