If you pass by some supermarkets in Kuwait, you can find a food product called “Quinoa”.
Quinoa is a seed with many health benefits. It’s a complete protein since it contains the nine essential amino acids unlike other grains that lack 2 amino acids (lysine and isoleucine). This priority makes quinoa a perfect food choice for vegetarians.
It’s a very good source of fibers which helps to prevent constipation and it can be included in your weight loss program since it gives you a fullness feeling.
Quinoa is also a good source of antioxidants, calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus and folic acid. People with celiac disease can benefit from this seed since it’s free in gluten.
But how can we enjoy QUINOA?
First, you should know how to cook it. It’s exactly like cooking rice. Put quinoa in the cooking pot, add water and boil it during 15 minutes. When it’s done, you can add it to your salad or your soup
