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!
