Question by turynn t: How much is a single serving of quinoa?
I usually eat oatmeal (1/2c dry + 1c water) but I’m trying quinoa for a change. I’ve searched all over and all the recipes or calorie counters are all involved and serve tons of people or I can’t tell if they’re talking dry or wet or what. I just want to know how much quinoa (DRY) and how much water to put in the pot for just *one person* for my breakfast and the nutritonal facts.
Answer by tessy
Use 1 part quinoa and 2 parts water, bring them to a boil and then simmer, covered for 15 minutes, or until all the water is absorbed. Do not stir the quinoa as it is cooking or it will cook unevenly.
I would say about 1/4 cup dry would yield enough for one person, but I personally eat as much as 1/2 cup (dry).
