Once you know how to cook it, quinoa is a really good addition to salads, vegetables or a nice alternative to serve with casseroles or curries. By cooking a little extra you will have some ready for lunches or a breakfast alternative.

Here are the steps to follow for perfect quinoa every time.

  1. Always rinse quinoa well under cold water using a fine mesh strainer, and rub the grains together with your hands. This removes the natural coating that can sometimes cause a bitter taste.
  2. Measure out 1 cup quinoa (serves 2) and add 1.5 cups water, place both in a pot with a pinch of sea salt.
  3. Bring to the boil, then cover and reduce to simmer (low heat) for 10-15 minutes, or until all the water has absorbed.
  4. Leave to stand for 5 minutes, then fluff up with a fork before serving.

Voila! Perfectly cooked quinoa ready to eat.

Stones Corner Renovations



Stones Corner Therapy Centre is currently undergoing some renovation work.

Please note that the clinic has moved across the hall to a new location on level one. If you are seeing Joanna at the Stones Corner clinic allow a few extra minutes to locate the rooms. 

Thank you for your patience during this transition period. 


Parking is available to the rear of the building.
