How To Use:
1) Using a saucepan: Place 1 part Quinoa and 2 parts water (or chicken/vegetable stock) in a sauce pan, bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cook for 15-20 minutes until the quinoa is translucent, plump and the external germ (‘white spiral tail’) is visible.
3) Using a rice cooker: Quinoa cooks like rice and can also be cooked in a rice cooker (1 cup Quinoa with 2 cups of water/ stock).
Cooked white Quinoa has the lightest softest texture and tends to cook up fluffier, which makes it a no-brainer substitute for rice dishes. Cooked red and black Quinoa have crunchier textures and hold their shape better as compared with white Quinoa. The taste is similar for all 3 quinoa colors.
