Quinoa… seems to be all the rage lately next to cauliflower pizza crust. Quinoa is very easy to cook too. All you do is bring 2 cups of water to a boil and once the water is at a hard boil add in 1 cup of a un-cooked quinoa. Turn the burner down to a low simmer and let that cook for 15 minutes. Take the quinoa off the burner and cover with a pan and let that steam for a bit.
One time I kept the burner on high and left the room for a bit, and ended up with burnt quinoa. It wasn’t good eats. Now I always make sure to bring it to a low boil. Always safer that way. Don’t ever do what I did, or you’ll end up with a pan to clean that isn’t fun.
Now you can do the fun part which is adding whatever you want to the quinoa. For this I added 1/2 cup of cooked quinoa, 1/4 cup of milk, 1 tablespoon of brown sugar, and some sliced almonds and cherries on top. Very good and it was filling too!
