I have used TruRoots Organic Sprouted Quinoa Trio. If you are not using pre rinsed quinoa do rinse it well before cooking.You can cook quinoa on the stove top open pan by following the instructions on the package or stovetop pressure cooker .IP makes life easier .Add in or leave the spices to your preference.You may add desired greens to substitute Spinach.You may double the recipe if desired.
