Last night we made quinoa. It's been a while since we made it; I'm not sure why because it's quick, easy, and delicious.
Take a cup of quinoa and rinse it a couple of times. It has a natural pesticide on it that needs to be removed. I just do one cup in a two cup measurer and change the water several times.
Saute some aromatics - carrots, onions, celery - in a sauce pan. Add a lot of water or stock (not the good stuff - about 6:1) and a cup of quinoa.
Boil for 15 minutes. Do not stir!
Pour through a sieve and let rest for a few minutes. Fluff with a fork and serve.
