Here are the steps to boil and cook quinoa grain:
- Rinse the quinoa thoroughly in cold water to remove any bitterness and excess starch.
- In a medium-sized pot, add one cup of quinoa and two cups of water or broth.
- Bring the water to a boil over high heat.
- Reduce the heat to low, cover the pot with a lid, and simmer for about 15-20 minutes or until the quinoa is tender and the liquid has been absorbed.
- Remove the pot from heat and let it sit, covered, for 5-10 minutes to allow the quinoa to steam and become fluffy.
- After the resting time, use a fork to fluff the quinoa and serve it as desired.
Note: Quinoa can also be cooked using a rice cooker or in the microwave. The ratio of quinoa to water/broth may vary slightly depending on the type of quinoa you use, so it's always a good idea to check the package instructions for specific cooking times and ratios.
