The Silver Diner's executive chef Ype Von Hengst and assistant chef Vincent give healthy, kid-friendly recipes to make cooking for the whole family an ease.

Ingredients:

• 1 lb. quinoa
• 1 tsp. salt
• 3 quarts of water
• 2 tsp. olive oil

Recipe:

1. Add water and salt to the pot and bring to a boil.
2. Add pasta to boiling water and bring back to a boil. Cook for 15 minutes. Remember to constantly stir to prevent sticking and overcooking.
3. Drain, then mix with the olive oil. Ready to serve.

Important Notes:

Gluten-free pasta takes longer to cook and needs a lot more water than regular pasta.

Silver Diner uses Andean Dream Quinoa Pasta. Follow the directions on the box if you use any other pasta.
