- 1 cup uncooked quinoa
- 1 ¾ cups water or broth
Begin by rinsing the quinoa until the water runs clear.
In a small saucepan bring water (or broth, depending on usage) to a boil then add quinoa.
Cover and simmer for 12-15 minutes until all the water is absorbed (Small pockets of air will appear on the surface - see pics below)
Remove from heat, and remove lid.
Fluff with a fork.
1 cup uncooked quinoa needs 1.75 Cups of liquid (the box says 1 cup quinoa to 2 cups liquid - but for me, if you do a 1:2 ratio, you end up with gummy, paste-y quinoa)
1 cup of uncooked quinoa will yield 3 cups cooked
