How to Prepare Quinoa
Quinoa is a delicious gluten-free substitute for the wheat intolerant. It is also a flavorful substitute for rice. It cooks quickly by comparison and has a slightly crunchy texture.
Servings: 3 cups
- 1 cup quinoa any variety
- 1 1/2 cups vegetable stock or water
Rinse quinoa under running water in a fine-meshed strainer. Transfer to a small or medium sauce pan with a lid.
Stir in 1 ½ cups vegetable stock or water and bring to a boil (about 2 minutes).
Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes. You’ll know it is done when the quinoa grows tiny little tails and all of the water is absorbed.
Remove from heat and fluff with a fork.
