Basic Quinoa

The master recipe for quinoa is as simple and straightforward as making a batch of rice. If
you are not a vegan or vegetarian, you may substitute chicken broth for the water for a
richer flavor.
1 cup quinoa, rinsed
2 cups water
1 teaspoon sea salt
Prepare the quinoa. Bring the water to a boil, add salt and then stir in the quinoa. Return
to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover and cook for 15 minutes. Let rest for five minutes,
fluff with a fork, then serve.

“Dry” Quinoa
This variation of the master recipe produces a drier quinoa with separate grains
throughout by reducing the amount of water and increasing the cooking time.
1 cup quinoa, rinsed
1 1/4 cups water
1 teaspoon sea salt
Prepare the quinoa. Bring the water to a boil, add salt and then stir in the quinoa.
Return to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover and cook for 30 to 35 minutes. Let rest for five
minutes, fluff with a fork, then serve.
