HOW TO COOK QUINOA
Use quinoa in a 1:2 ratio with liquid of your choice…water, broth, nut milk. For 1C of dried quinoa, use 2C of liquid. Measure quinoa, rinse well, add to saucepan with liquid and a dash of salt, bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove from heat and fluff with a fork. Serve or refrigerate.
For “fluffed” quinoa, use quinoa in a 1:1.5 ratio with liquid of your choice. For 1C of dried quinoa, use 1 1/2C liquid. Measure quinoa, rinse well, add to saucepan with liquid and a dash of salt, bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 15 minutes. Do not remove lid from pan during cooking. Turn off heat and leave pan on stove top for an additional 5 minutes, all the while keeping the lid on the saucepan. After 20 minutes total, remove lid, and fluff quinoa with fork. Serve or refrigerate.
