I don't know if "Chef Ramon" even tried to make this recipe, but it came out beautifully for me. Our family loves quinoa and the consistancy was fine. I don't know if there was any nutritional value lost, but the quinoa sure beat the heck out of starchy-carb-filled rice. Thank you, Tarbean, for this wonderful recipe!

Unfortunately if you cook Quinoa for such a long time , all the nutrients, which are fantastic, will be destroyed and the quinoa will be a complete and horrible mush. Please be sure I know what I am talking about , I am a Chef from Peru ; where quinoa originated with the Incas. Regards, Chef Ramon
