HOW TO COOK QUINOA
Learn how to cook quinoa quickly and easily on the stovetop. Simple to make, this gluten-free grain is the perfect addition to main dishes, salads and is great for meal prep.
Rinse quinoa using a fine-mesh sieve thoroughly under running water. Drain quinoa well.
Combine rinsed quinoa and water in a pot, and boil over medium-high heat. Once it starts boiling, reduce the heat to simmer and cook until ready, about 15 minutes.
Remove the pot from the cooktop, cover, and let the quinoa rest for 5 minutes.
Remove the lid and fluff with a fork. Season with salt, pepper and other seasonings.
TIPS • Before serving, fluff the quinoa with a fork to separate the grains. • Once the quinoa is done cooking, take it off of the heat and place a lid on it for a few minutes. This will help the quinoa absorb any excess liquid.
