How to Cook Quinoa in a Rice Cooker
Want perfect quinoa in less than 30 minutes? Your rice cooker is about to become your new favorite kitchen appliance. It is a game changer for cooking quinoa. Here is how to cook perfect quinoa in a rice cooker every time!
Gluten Free, Healthy, Quinoa
Olive Oil Spray
or a spoon of coconut oil
chicken broth, vegetable broth, juice or water
Place quinoa in a fine mesh strainer and rinse with cold water for three to five minutes, until the water runs clear.
Spray the bottom of the rice cooker with olive oil.
Place the quinoa in the rice cooker.
Add 2 cups of liquid.
Turn the rice cooker on and cook for 15 minutes. (Use the white rice setting if you have one.)
Unplug the rice cooker and allow to sit for 5 to 10 more minutes.
Fluff and serve.
Tip: I often buy pre-rinsed quinoa but I still rinse it. Whether you do or not is a personal choice, but I find well-rinsed quinoa easier to digest.
