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 Recipe #16399 and then followed your instructions exactly. I then used your recipe to make my Recipe #518104. 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
