Easy Popped Quinoa


Quinoa must be rinsed before using


  • 180g quinoa
  • salt or other seasonings, (optional for savoury)


  • Heat a wide sauté pan over medium high heat until extremely hot. Test the temperature by adding a drop of water. It should sizzle immediately.
  • Pour in the quinoa, making sure it stays in a single layer. Shaking the pot regularly, let the quinoa pop for 1-2 minutes. You know it is done when it smells slightly nutty and the popping has slowed down (similar to popcorn).
  • Transfer to a bowl, add seasoning (optional)

Why not add to cereals, as a topping for salads or into baked goods
