Cooking Quinoa

Can I tell you a secret? I never made quinoa before. And I never ate it either until one time last year at whole foods. I like the texture. I don’t know how to eat it really. But since I am trying to eat healthier I thought I would start with a salad. So I made it in beef stock and threw it in with my salad! My cousin told me that she had been making it wrong the whole time!

Its basically like rice. A 2:1 ratio. Use your favorite broth, to get some flavor infused in there.

I used Trader Joe’s Tri Color quinoa. 1/2 cup of dry quinoa, washed clean in cold water. Then in a small pot I added the quinoa and 1 cup of beef broth. Bring to boil, then lower to a simmer and cook covered until all the liquid is absorbed. Easy right?

  1. I cook quinoa in my mini rice cooker with a 1:1 ratio using water. It comes out perfect every time (but I’m sure it will be a lot more tastier using a beef or vegetable broth).
