Quinoa is usually covered in a bitter resin called saponin and should
be rinsed off before cooking. To cook quinoa, bring 1.5 cups of water
to a boil, adding in 1 cup of quinoa. After boiling, reduce heat and
simmer uncovered for 12 to 15 minutes. Storage:
increase the shelf life of your quinoa by storing it in an air-tight
container in a cool, dry place. You can also increase the shelf life of
quinoa by freezing or refrigerating it.
