How To Cook Red Quinoa

All you need to know about: How To Cook Red Quinoa.


– 1 cup of red quinoa
– 2 cups of water
– 1 tablespoon of olive oil
– Salt to taste


1. Begin by rinsing the quinoa in a fine mesh sieve, or by stirring it in a bowl of cold water. This will remove any residue or bitterness, ensuring that you have a clean, fresh flavor.

2. In a medium saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, add the quinoa and stir to coat it in the oil. This will help the quinoa to become more aromatic and flavorful.

3. Once the quinoa is coated in oil, add the water and salt to the pot. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and cover the pot.

4. Simmer the quinoa for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until all of the water is absorbed.

5. Once the quinoa is finished cooking, fluff it with a fork and serve. Enjoy!
