How to Cook Perfect Quinoa
The key to cooking perfect quinoa is simply use less water. Use a ratio of 1.25 cups of water to 1 cup of quinoa for light and fluffy quinoa every time.

In a 2-quart pan or larger, bring the water to a boil.
Add the quinoa, stir, and reduce the heat to a low simmer.
Cover the pan and cook for 10-15 minutes, or until all the water is absorbed.
Fluff the quinoa with a fork and leave the lid off the pan to allow any residual steam to escape.
