How to Cook Quinoa
- Rinse. Pour quinoa in a fine mesh colander and rinse under cold running water for about 30 seconds.
- 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.
- 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.
