Bird Recipe: Birdie Quinoa

Did you know that quinoa is one of the few plant sources of perfect protein? You do not need to mix beans with quinoa to make a complimentary protein as you do with most grains! At Momma's Birdie Bread, we have known about quinoa for quite some time, which is why it has been in our mixes from the beginning.

Birdie Quinoa

1 cup Quinoa
2-3 cups Water
Corn kernels (or another veggie if your bird is corn sensitive)
Chopped carrots
Raisins and/or dried apples (unsulphured)
Cinnamon stick

Boil 2 cups of water, add quinoa.
Cook for 10 minutes, then add veggies and dried fruit.
Cook for another 5 minutes or until the quinoa grain is clearish and has a tiny tail sprouting from it.
You may have to add a little more water if it gets too dry too quickly.
Let cool.  Serve.  You can put almost any veggies or fruit in this recipe.
