Fermented quinoa is rich, tangy and delicious. It’s a great way to increase the nutritional value and get a dose of probiotics at the same time! See section above for five different serving suggestions.




  1. Cook the quinoa in 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 12-15 minutes, until all the water has been absorbed.
  2. Move to a glass container and stir in the probiotic culture.
  3. Leave it out on the counter to ferment for 12-24 hours.
  4. Move to the refrigerator for storage and eat within 1 week.
