To cook quinoa:The rule of thumb is 1 cup of quinoa needs 1.5cups of water. So it's a 1:1.5 ratio, and yields 3 cups of cooked quinoa (about 6 portions).To a saucepan, add water and rinsed quinoa and bring to a boil. When it starts boiling, cover with a lid and turn down the heat to the lowest setting possible, then leave it to cook covered for 15 minutes.Remove from heat, and let it rest for 5 more minutes covered. And finally, remove the lid and fluff with a fork!
