Quinoa is an ancient traditional grain grown at 12,000 feet above sea level. It is found in the bulk sections of health food stores - and thus - no cooking instructions! It is easy to prepare, though, and I am going to tell you how!
How to Cook Quinoa
Rinse quinoa. Combine 1 cup quinoa with 2 cups water or broth in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and turn heat down to low. Cover and cook for 15 minutes. Turn off burner and let it sit for 5 minutes more. Fluff with a fork and serve. When quinoa is cooked, the grains are translucent and the white germ is visible. This makes 4 generous servings.
