How to Prepare Quinoa

This recipe was created by Karen Wiens on 1/29/15.

Serves 4
2 parts liquid, 1 part quinoa. Soak the quinoa in water first for 5 minutes. Drain in a colander.
We use half water and half vegetable broth for the liquid.
Bring quinoa and liquid to a boil uncovered, then turn the burner down to low, cover and let it simmer for about 20 minutes. Turn the burner off and let it sit to soak up any remaining liquid.
We always make more than we’ll need for the recipe we’re working on — it’s great left over for salads or to use in other recipes.
