You can purchase a box of Quinoa at any supermarket. I buy the Trader Joe’s Organic Quinoa. You can make it in the microwave, stovetop, or in your rice cooker. I used the rice cooker.
Two different ways:
Simply treat quinoa like rice. Add two parts water to one part quinoa, stir, cover and cook.
I also add a splash of olive oil and salt to the water before cooking the quinoa. You can also subsitute the water for chicken stock.
We used 1 cup of quinoa and 2 cups of water.
In a pan you can add in 1-2 tablespoons of diced garlic and a little olive oil. Heat until garlic is a little browned. Add this to your cooked quinoa for extra DELICOUSNESS!
Serve kung pao chicken, canned tuna, or mongolian beef over it. It’s a yummy and quick side dish!
