    Debbwl's Note:

    Have been asked a few times how to cook Quinoa. I strongly suggest it be toasted using Chef #10404 Quinoa-Toasted as it makes a world of difference in both taste and texture.

      Debbwl... I took your advice and made dibs Quinoa-Toasted and then followed your instructions exactly. I then used your recipe to make my Beef and Quinoa Stuffed Bell Peppers. It worked wonderfully. Great flavor and texture. Thank you for posting something so simple that I can't botch it up! Made for Culinary Quest 2014 / Suitcase Gourmets

      Four things I have learned about cooking quinoa: always rinse it first (even if the package/box states it is pre-rinsed), toast the grain first, salt sufficiently, and use broth or stock. That's what I did. I toasted the quinoa in about 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Cooked 15 minutes then set aside for about 10 minutes. Perfect! Made for CQ 2014.
