I promised I’d tell you more about quinoa. Today, let’s talk about how to prepare quinoa. It is actually quite simple. You cook quinoa very much like you cook lose rice. To prepare just plain quinoa, mix 1 part of the grain with 2 parts of water.
For example, mix one cup of quinoa with 2 cups of water in a medium saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil over high heat, and give it a good stir. Then turn the heat to low and put a lid on your pot. Cook the quinoa for 10 to 15 minutes or until all the water is absorbed.
Remove the cooked grain from the stove and fluff it with a fork before you serve it. You can serve it as a side dish just like you would plain rice like this.
You can also use the cooked quinoa to add it to soups and stews or use it instead of rice in casseroles.
