Q: Can you freeze cooked quinoa?

Sent by Williams

Editor: Yes, you can definitely freeze cooked quinoa; it's one of our favorite healthy meal shortcuts. Let the cooked quinoa cool down completely, then transfer it to a resealable plastic bag. Press all the air out before sealing, then pat the quinoa into an even layer before freezing. It's ready to go whenever you need a quinoa fix; just thaw overnight in the refrigerator! You can also just freeze it in an airtight, freezer-safe container too.
