  • Add ½ cup of dry quinoa in a mesh strainer and rinse it under a running water. Then strain it well and add it in a pot with 1 cup of water.
  • Bring it to a boil on high and then reduce the heat to very low allowing it to simmer. Do not add a lid on top. Simmer until all the water is gone. Then remove from the heat and cover the pot with a lid. Keep it covered for 5 minutes. Then remove the lid and fluff the quinoa with a fork.
