Quick tip: quick quinoa

Quinoa, yes it might be a fad food, but I still like it.  The annoying thing is cooking it on the stove and getting it right so it’s not mushy or stuck to the pan.  So, here’s my best tip for cooking quinoa!

A microwave.  Just like how I cook rice, a microwave can be your best friend here.  For one person you will need:

  • 1/2 cup of quinoa (rinsed to get rid of the starch)
  • 3/4 cup of boiling water
  • Salt, pepper and any seasoning (chicken/veg stock cube)
  • A microwave safe bowl and a plate

So, in a microwave safe bowl, add the quinoa and the water plus any seasoning you want as it will be quite plain without anything.  Put this in a microwave with the plate on top and then cook on high for six minutes.

That’s IT! Easy and perfect!quinoa
