Directions Cooking Instructions: 1 cup quinoa + 2 cups liquid = 4 servings. Rinse quinoa under cold water until water runs clear. Place 1 cup of quinoa and 2 cups of water or broth into a saucepan. Bring to a rolling boil, reduce heat to a simmer, cover with a lid, and cook until liquid is absorbed (about 15 minutes). Remove from heat and let stand for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and serve. Flavor Tip: Before adding the liquid, saute quinoa in pan with a dash of olive oil until slightly toasted (about 5 minutes). Store in a cool, dry place.
