how to cook quinoa

Quinoa is a nutritious and versatile grain that can be used in a variety of dishes, from salads to soups to breakfast bowls. Here’s a basic recipe for cooking quinoa:


  • 1 cup of quinoa
  • 2 cups of water or broth
  • Salt, to taste


  1. Rinse the quinoa in a fine mesh strainer under cold running water for a few seconds. This will help remove any bitterness from the outer coating of the quinoa.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine the rinsed quinoa, water or broth, and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  3. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low and cover the saucepan with a lid. Simmer the quinoa for about 15-20 minutes, or until all the liquid has been absorbed and the quinoa is tender.
  4. Remove the saucepan from the heat and let it sit covered for 5 minutes. This will allow the quinoa to absorb any remaining liquid and fluff up.
  5. Fluff the quinoa with a fork and serve.

You can also add additional seasonings or ingredients to the quinoa, such as garlic, herbs, vegetables, or protein. Just adjust the cooking liquid as needed based on the additional ingredients you add.
