How to cook quinoa like a pro

Cooking quinoa well is really easy! Master the practice and you’ll have fluffy, tasty quinoa every single time. Simply use double the amount of water to quinoa (1 cup of quinoa = 2 cups of water, for example) and cook uncovered on a medium heat until all the water is absorbed and evaporated, stirring now and then.

Then remove the pan from the heat and cover with a tea towel for five minutes. Done!

The rest is easy peasy – check out the instructions below and you’re in for a tangy treat. Enjoy!
