Oh gosh that looks good. I love Quiona… it smells like Peanut Butta when it’s cooked. And I love me some PB !! 🙂

    Doesn’t it? Quinoa is one of my favorite things to make; pop in rice cooker and pack up in fridge for left overs. Easy!

I love quinoa too! This looks wonderful! I’m going to make it for a cookout tomorrow. One question — Do you have to rinse it before you cook it? I feel like so much gets wasted when I rinse it.

    Lovely, Joanna, it’s great to hear from you! As for quinoa, yes, you must rinse unless you buy a package that is already pre-rinsed. I still do it to make sure. The easiest way to rinse quinoa is in a fine mesh strainer. Just pour the dried quinoa in and hold it under cold running water (filtered), using your hands to stir. Let it drain right in the sieve while you measure your water and then dump it right in. Hope this helps!
