23 Nutritious Foods Everyone Should be Able to Prepare

7. Basic QUINOA

You don't have to be a health nut to love quinoa. This little seed has tons of protein and the flavor is subtle enough that it can work in almost any dish. Make sure to rinse quinoa before you cook it to wash away any bitterness. After that, put it in a saucepan, add twice as much water or broth as you have quinoa, and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the flame to medium-low, cover, and simmer for about 15-20 minutes, or until the water is absorbed. Remove from heat and give it 5 minutes to sit, covered, before you open it and give it a nice fluff. It'll last about a week in the fridge and can be added to basically anything.
