Preparation method

  • Rinse the quinoa with cold water and soak in cold water overnight.
  • Transfer the quinoa to a jar or container and cover with a passing cloth. Fasten the cloth with a piece of string or a large elastic band. This makes rinsing easier later.
  • Put the jar in a dark place and leave for a day.
  • Now put the jar in a place that receives a lot of sunlight and leave the quinoa to continue sprouting.
  • Briefly rinse with cold water every day, pouring off the liquid through the passing cloth that has been fastened.
  • The sprouts can be eaten raw.

Serving suggestions

  • As a component in a salad or as part of a roll or sandwich.
  • As a garnish for starters, entremets, and main courses, e.g. with components containing butterhead lettuce, mussels, celery, or chicory.
