Step 1

Rinse your quinoa: place 1 cup quinoa in a fine mesh strainer and rinse it a few times under cool water.

Step 2

Add quinoa and water or broth to a pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to low, cover, and let simmer for exactly 15 minutes.

Step 3

After 15 minutes, remove the pot from heat and let stand covered for another 5-10 minutes.

Step 4

Next, fluff quinoa with a fork and serve. Makes about 3 cups of cooked quinoa.
