Quinoa is another one of the super grains. It contains more protein than any other grain. In fact, it is considered a complete protein since it contains all eight essential amino acids.

Quinoa is also high in unsaturated fats and lower in carbohydrates than most grains. It is loaded with niacin, iron, phosphorus, potassium, and is high in lysine.

Quinoa will expand to four times its original volume.

The staple of the ancient Incan civilization, quinoa was called “the mother grain.” When planting this highly revered grain, the Inca indians used a solid gold shovel. Quinoa is still used as a staple in South America.

Use quinoa in side dishes, soups, cereals, breads, pancakes, and waffles.

The Electric Pressure Cooker is Chef Brad’s favorite pan for cooking breakfast cereals. It cooks fast and turns to a keep warm mode. Grains stay hot and in perfect condition for hours when cooked using the electric pressure cooker.

Most grains do well in the pressure cooker. Natural release method is recommended. Meaning after suggested cooking time turn off heat and let the pressure come down naturally.
