Step 1

In a large fine-mesh colander, rinse the quinoa thoroughly under cold running water for 1 minute (this helps to remove the bitter taste in quinoa). Drain well.

Step 2

In a medium cooking pot, add the rinsed and drained quinoa, water, and olive oil. Bring to boil over medium heat, about 5 minutes.

Step 3

Cover with the lid and reduce the heat to low. Let the quinoa simmer for 15 minutes until tender and the water is absorbed.

Step 4

Remove from heat and allow the cooked quinoa rest for another 5 minutes. (You will notice that the grains have popped open).

Step 5

Fluff with a fork and serve.
