1 cup dry quinoa makes about 3 cups. Basic quinoa preparation:
- 1 part dry quinoa
- 2 parts water
- Place quinoa and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil.
- Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until all of the water is absorbed (about 15 minutes).
- You will know that the quinoa is done when all the grains have turned from white to transparent, and the spiral-like germ has separated.
