Here's another recipe I made up as I went along. It is gluten-free and soy-free. Did you know that quinoa has more protein than any other grain?


  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon organic chickpea miso
  • 1 tablespoon Coconut Aminos (awesome soy-free sauce)
  • 1 cup dry organic quinoa (I used red)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil (I used the amazing California Olive Ranch Arbequina)
  • handful of pine-nuts
  1. Add water and aminos to pan and heat until boiling
  2. Add quinoa, cover pan, reduce to simmer, and set timer for 15 minutes
  3. If the water has not absorbed after 15 minutes, give it another 5-10 minutes (keep a close watch)
  4. Dilute the miso in a small amount of luke warm water
  5. When quinoa is ready, toss in olive oil, diluted miso, and pine-nuts
  6. Enjoy!
