Can get regular organic white quinoa @ earthfare sometimes under $2lb, depending on the time of year..
Sprout it like brown rice, any sprouted grain (aside from the few that are kind of toxic)is higher in vitamin content, as a general rule..
If you cook anything else, in a pot or fry pan, or heat up extra water for FB meal, throw the quinoa in the pot afterward and let it keep going. Anything you cooked before will add some flavor.. Doesn't really take long to cook, can finish on the leftover fuel after you boil with an alcohol stove. Get to to a boil, cover, and wrap your pot in some spare cloths for 20 mins.. Or just let it keep boiling while stirring for a while.
Quinoa, Buckwheat Kasha, and Barley are my favorite grains, hands down!
