Quinoa, White or Red

1 cup quinoa
2 cups water or broth, or any kind of milk

Rinse quinoa thoroughly in strainer for 3 minutes. Drain well. Place quinoa, liquid and desired seasonings in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Cover and simmer for 7-10 minutes. Quinoa is done when all the grains have turned from white to transparent and the sprial like germ has separated. Turn off heat, leave quinoa, covered, on burner for 4–5 minutes. Remove lid and fluff with a fork.

*Cooked with any kind of milk, quinoa makes a delicious and nutritious breakfast cereal. Add a little bit of cinnamon, maple syrup or honey and some fresh or dried fruit to vary from day to day.
*Red quinoa is slightly more chewy than white quinoa.
