Some people love it, some people hate it. But if you prepare it correctly (and use it in one of the great recipes linked below), you’re certain to have a great salad or side that’s both healthy and popular.
- 1 cup quinoa
- 1 tablespoon oil
- 2 cups water
- 1 teaspoon salt
- Wash and strain quinoa. Add oil to a saucepan over medium heat. Add quinoa and toast for 20 seconds. Add water and salt bring to a boil. Lower heat to low and cook for 15-20 minutes, until water is absorbed.
- As soon as you close the fire, you can place a paper towel over the quinoa and recover the pot. Let sit. The paper towel will absorb any excess water. Fluff quinoa with a fork.
