How to Cook Quinoa.
Here is exactly how I cook quinoa – it’s so simple, there is little work involved!
I’m a huge fan of quinoa. I love throwing it into a big pot of chili, adding it to soups, or enjoying it with our Chinese take-out instead of white rice. Quinoa is a great gluten-free source of protein, iron, and fiber. It’s also a quick way to get in a serving of whole grains. I also love to make granola or crispy veggie/cheese patties with it. Simply put, quinoa is so nutritious and even more versatile!

How to Cook Quinoa
Total Time: 30 minutes
- 2 cups (340g) well-rinsed, uncooked quinoa
- 3 cups (720ml) water
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
Combine uncooked quinoa, water, and salt in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, cover, decrease the heat, and simmer for 25 to 30 minutes, until the quinoa is tender and you can see the little quinoa "curlicues."
Cooked quinoa stays fresh for up to 6-7 days in the refrigerator or 8 months in the freezer.
