Ingredients

  • 1 cup dry quinoa
  • 2 cups cold water

Instructions

  • Rinse quinoa under cold water before cooking. Keep rinsing until any of the little foamy bubbles that you see are gone and water is running clear.
  • Place quinoa and water in a medium sauce pan and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce the heat to low, cover and allow to simmer for about 12-15 minutes or until the water has absorbed. You will see that when the quinoa is done, it will be translucent and have a little white circle around it (thats the germ).
  • Fluff with your fork and enjoy!
