Garlic Toasted Quinoa Use this crunch, savory topping in place of croutons on any of your favorite salads. 1 tbsp. (15 mL) butter ¼ tsp. (1 mL) garlic salt (*I used garlic powder) ½ cup (125 mL) quinoa (*rinse quinoa to remove bitter outer coating, soak for 2-4 hours to remove outer coating and to be easily digested) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Melt the butter in a small frying pan on medium heat and add the garlic salt. Remove from the heat and add the quinoa, tossing slightly to coat with butter. Spread the quinoa on a large baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until the quinoa is toasted and fragrant (*I had to bake a little longer since I soaked mine beforehand). Remove from the oven and cool. Use immediately or store in a sealed contained in the refrigerator for 6 to 8 weeks. Recipe from: Quinoa 365: The Everyday Superfood   By: Patricia Green and Carolyn Hemming
