I like my quinoa super-fluffy. Almost cous cous like in it's fluffiness. If you haven't tried quinoa, or have been disappointed that it just...doesn't taste good, you might want to try it the Barefoot way.
1 cup Quinoa
1 3/4 cups water
bullion or other vegetable stock seasoning (or you can use veggie stock instead of the water)
1. Wash quinoa in a strainer. This is definitely, totally, necessary. If you don't wash the quinoa, it tastes like eating sand.
2. Combine quinoa, salt, bullion, and water in a pot, or in a rice cooker pot (I think the rice cooker is my secret to great quinoa, but if you don't have one, you can do it on the stove.)
3. Bring to a boil, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes or until super fluffy. If quinoa seems to be cooked but not fluffy at the end of the 15 minutes, add more water.
