"I grew up in Ecuador, where my mom often made soup with quinoa, potatoes, and peanuts. Quinoa is believed to have been the Incan kings' grain of choice, and this is a basic recipe for preparing it." -Ximena Cardoso-Sloane, Seattle

How to Make It

Step 1

Place quinoa in a fine sieve; rinse with cold water, and drain.
