An easy and fool proof way to cook quinoa on the stove top.
Prep Time:5 minutes
Cook Time:15 minutes
Total Time:20 minutes
Yield:2 cups cooked 1x
1 cup dry quinoa
1 1/4 cup vegetable broth (or water)
dash of salt
Add 1 cup of quinoa, 1 1/4 cup of vegetable broth or water and a dash of salt to a pot and bring to a boil on the stove-top.
Once it begins to boil, bring down heat to low/medium, cover and let simmer for another 10 to 12 minutes or until all water has evaporated and quinoa is soft and fluffy.
Quinoa recipes usually call for 2 cups of liquid, but based on my experience I have found that using a 1:1.25 ratio really leaves you with the driest and ‘fluffiest’ quinoa, vs a mushy and wet quinoa. Feel free to experiment, and if your quinoa still seems uncooked feel free to add a bit more water or veggie broth.
