How To Make Perfect Quinoa (every time)
Perfectly fluffy, delicious and easy quinoa!
- 1 cup quinoa any color
- 2 cups water or broth
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
Rinse your quinoa under water. This will remove the bitter (or soapy) tasting coating the seeds tend to have.
Pour the water or broth into a sauce pan. Heat on high and bring to a rapid boil.
One the water is boiling, stir in the rinsed quinoa and continue to boil for 5 minutes. Then turn off the heat, cover with a lid (leaving the pan on the burner) and let stand for 20 minutes.
Once the 20 minutes are up, remove the lid and fluff with a fork.
