So I know many of you have cooked with quinoa before...I just have once now. Im not really sure if I did it right!
I rinsed it, soaked it (about 20 minutes), rinsed it.
1 cup of quinoa and 1.5 cups of water brought to a boil, reduced heat to low and let simmer for 25 minutes...then kept checking in intervals until the water has evaporated.
In the beginning the boil was too high and I dont know if this messed with it. I forgot how heavy my pot was and didnt reduce the heat enough at first.
The outcome: the "shell" had a little crunch, popped in my mouth...and wasnt quite as fluffy as I would have suspected from reviews.
It got a little funky...I guess I figured it would be more self contained like rice...not the case. Does this look normal?
Mine doesnt look as appetizing as others I see! (trying to make the pic smaller)
