How to Cook Quinoa

  1. Rinse. Pour quinoa in a fine mesh colander and rinse under cold running water for about 30 seconds.
  2. Cook. Add it to saucepan and pour water or broth over it and stir. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to low, cover with lid and simmer 15-20 minutes.  Don’t remove the lid.
  3. Remove from heat. As soon as the water is absorbed, remove from heat and set aside for 8-10 minutes before fluffing with a fork.
