How do I cook Quinoa for my Spicy Chili Quinoa Salad?

Quinoa is really easy to cook, it’s just like rice. For every cup of quinoa, add two cups of salted water. Always make sure to rinse your quinoa in a fine mesh colander for about a minute to remove any bitterness on the outside of the quinoa caused by the naturally occurring saponins. Bring the quinoa to a boil over medium-high heat then decrease to a gentle simmer, cook until the quinoa has absorbed most of the water, about 10-20 minutes, and reduce the heat as time goes on to maintain the gentle simmer. Remove the pot from heat, cover, and let the quinoa steam for 5 minutes, and then gently flake it on a fork. That helps get it nice and fluffy.
