  1. most recipes for cooking quinoa call for a 1:2 ratio-so one part quinoa for 2 parts water (or broth)-but i like my quinoa less soggy, so after thoroughly rinsing it i add 1 and 1/4 to 1/2 cups of water (or broth) per cup of quinoa. i like to “toast” the quinoa for about a minute or two, then add the water, bring to a quick boil, reduce the heat and let it cook (simmer) for about 15-20 minutes. when most of the water is gone I turn off the heat, cover the pot with a lid and let it steam for about 10 minutes.
