Recently it occurred to me to make quinoa in the rice cooker instead of on the stove top. It worked, so I often make a heap at the beginning of the week that I can add yummy things to it for work lunches.

Sometimes quinoa comes pre-rinsed, but, it's best to rinse it anyway. It has a bitter coating that can be irritating for some people and it doesn't taste good anyway.

You can use stock instead of water or add spices for flavouring during cooking as well.

You can use the rice cooker cup or just a standard measuring cup.

Preparation Time: 2 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Makes: 2-3 servings

1 cup quinoa, washed and drained
1 1/4 cups water

Place washed quinoa and water in your rice cooking pan.
Switch the button on your rice cooker to "cook"
Once your rice cooker has completed cooking it will switch to "warm" and you will have perfect quinoa. Eat immediately or wait for it to cool a bit before storing in the fridge.
