  • Hi! I'm intrigued to know how

    Hi! I'm intrigued to know how the tiny quinoa grains don't fall through the slits in the basket.  I've been racking my brain as to how i can cook quinoa in the thermomix. I always cook my rice in it but had to buy a very fine seive to wash the quinoa before cooking as i beieve it contains a saponin that has to be rinsed/rubbed off.

    Otherwise will give this a go when plums are back in season
