Nope. Your body will NOT be able to digest it. Just do one part of quinoa to two parts stock/water (like 1 cup quinoa to 2 cups liquid), bring to boil, and bring heat to low for 20 minutes

  1. No, you need to cook it. It tastes gross raw, and can really mess up your intestines if you eat too much of it raw. Besides, your body wouldn’t be able to digest it or absorb any of its nutrients in its raw state.

  2. No, you need to rinse it first as it is coated in saponin (a naturally formed soapy chemical) which makes it too bitter to eat.
