Sometimes making quinoa is intimidating, yet to make perfect quinoa all you have to do is follow a few simple instructions. Quinoa has a bitter flavor so if you don’t rinse it well in a mesh strainer before cooking it won’t taste very good. Another great tip is in place of water, use chicken broth. It will add a great flavor to your quinoa. Here is the basic recipe to make perfect quinoa!
- The ratio is 1 cup of uncooked quinoa to 2 cups of liquid
- In a 2-quart pan, bring water or chicken stock to a boil.
- Add the quinoa, stir, and reduce the heat to a low simmer.
- Cover the pan and cook for 20 minutes, or until all the water is absorbed.
- Fluff the quinoa with a fork.
Now to make, just assemble any ingredients you like to make the Quinoa Bowl unique to you!
The trick to making a perfect ranch drizzle without buying a squeeze bottle is to use a sandwich bag. Just cut the corner to make it easy for squeezing. The bonus is easy clean up too!
