How to Make It

Step 1

Place quinoa in a fine wire-mesh strainer; rinse under running water 1 minute. Drain. Bring quinoa, 1 3/4 cups water, and salt to a boil in a saucepan over high. Cover and reduce heat to medium. Cook until liquid is mostly absorbed, 12 to 15 minutes.

Step 2

Remove from heat, and let steam, covered, 10 minutes. Drain any excess cooking liquid.
