Is Quinoa Better For You Than Rice
Quinoa is better for you than rice. The reason being is quinoa has twice the amount of protein in a cup and fiber. Quinoa will fill you up, leave you feeling full and you can eat a smaller portion of quinoa compared to traditional rice.
Why Do You Wash Quinoa
You will find many rinse quinoa to remove the coating called saponin. This can offer a bitter and even soapy flavor to your quinoa. Now, most boxed quinoa is pre-rinsed, so it is up to you if you choose to rinse your quinoa or toss it in dry. Either route will work just fine in this breakfast recipe.
How to Store Leftover Peaches and Cream Quinoa
You will want to store any leftovers in an airtight container. This will store up to four days in the fridge. You can eat it cold leftover or warm it up. We prefer to reheat it in the microwave or on a skillet on the stove. Feel free to add more cream or milk if your mixture gets a bit dry as it chills.
