  1. If you soak quinoa for 12 hours, there would be no evidence of sprouting at that point – you would have? to wait a few hours more till you could actually see the sprouts coming out. Soaking quinoa or any other grain or bean for that matter, helps release the nutrients for easier absorption & a healthier final product.

  2. it was pretty unambiguous: she said boil it for? ten minutes, then put on the lid, turn the stove off and walk away for like seven minutes. and it’s done. just fluff it with a fork and serve.

  3. YoLninYo, it certainly can be. but not all brands are so expensive. cosco has a brand that’s $9.99 a pound.? i buy a different brand called Eden Organic from the local grocery for around $5 a pound. definitely shop around. amazon has some that’s $16 a pound. there’s no reason it needs to be that expensive.

  4. thanks. we stumbled across quinoa a handful of weeks ago, just trying new things. it’s awesome. weve branched out with black rice. then we tried bulgur and flax seed. my cooking has changed irrevocably and so has? out grocery purchasing. the last time i made quinoa, i added a chix bouillon cube to a wonderful effect. i think im going to make it tonight and add some cilantro as well, since we have some in the fridge. thanks for the easy directions !!

  5. Quinoa is an Incan super food/protein originated from PERU, highly regarded in? that culture for its nutritional benefits. Just a quick fact, Thanks 🙂

  6. This is not true. If you soaked? quinoa for 12 hours you’d have sprouts! This protein will be absorbed by the body with normal cooking, no worries.

  7. I’ve heard that quinoa needs to be soaked in water for? 12 hours before cooking otherwise the protein will not be absorb-able by the body. Is this true?

  8. Dear HyperHowie, It is quite simple. You cook the quinoa for 10 minutes and then (just as we instruct), turn the burner off and let it sit for an additional 5 or 6 minutes depending on how soft and fluffy you prefer your quinoa. Let it sit for 10 minutes if you want, it’s up to you.? All the liquid will be gone and it will be ready to eat. Super easy. Develop your own ‘precise’ method depending on how you like to eat your quinoa. Try cooking it and you’ll see what we mean. Enjoy! 🙂

    Please get your cooking directions down right: In the intro you say, cook it for 10 minutes…leave it alone. Then, later, you mention coming back in 5-6 minutes (IS THAT TO JUST STIR IT? You? do say the liquid will all be gone?) NOT VERY PRECISE. Which is it?????
