Step 1

Place quinoa in a medium-sized bowl and cover with cold water. Soak for 2 minutes.

Step 2

Transfer soaked quinoa to a fine-mesh strainer or seive. Rinse quinoa under cold running water for 30 seconds until water runs clear.

Step 3

Shake the sieve to remove excess water.

Step 4

Transfer to a medium-sized pot fitted with a lid.

Step 5

Add 2 cups of cold water and salt to the pot.

Step 6

Bring water to a boil over high heat.

Step 7

Once the water boils, immediately reduce heat to medium-low.

Step 8

Cover pot and simmer until quinoa absorbs all of the water and is tender, about 15 to 20 minutes. If the quinoa still looks wet, continue to cook, checking every 5 minutes.

Step 9

Turn off heat and let stand, covered 5 to 10 minutes. Fluff with a fork to separate the grains.
