Sauté onions and celery. Season with salt, pepper and oregano.
Add quinoa and water. Cover and boil on medium heat for about 25 minutes until cooked and fluffy.
Quinoa is a nutritional powerhouse, it has a delightful nutty flavor that is delicious on its own, or with mild seasoning and simple vegetables as in this recipe.
Food as Medicine
Quinoa is high in protein, and the protein it contains is complete, which means it includes all nine essential amino acids.
Be sure to wash your quinoa well, as its natural saponin coating is quite bitter, and is not always fully removed during processing.
