Perfect Fluffy Quinoa

perfect fluffy quinoa recipe
It turns out there is a way to make quinoa you’ll actually want to eat. I know, right?? This approach makes quinoa that’s fluffy and delicious, no gummy starch here!

🍴Rinse quinoa in a fine mesh sieve until the water runs clear. This will wash away excess starch.

🍴Meanwhile, bring a pot of water to a boil with a pinch of salt. (It doesn’t matter how much water you use, as long as its enough to submerge the quinoa plus about an inch or so — like making pasta!)

🍴Boil the quinoa for 10 minutes.

🍴Drain the quinoa well through the fine mesh sieve.

🍴Transfer the quinoa back into the pot off of the heat, cover and steam for 10 minutes.

🍴Fluff with a fork!

Try it and tell me what you think! It’s definitely the best approach I’ve tried!
