5 Mistakes to Avoid When Making Quinoa

Quinoa is a quick-cooking grain much like couscous but can quickly become a flavorless mushy mess if overcooked. This can be avoided if you use some techniques and avoid these mistakes. Make sure to rinse the Quinoa to remove the natural coating that causes a bitter taste. Season the cooking liquid to add flavor don’t use just plain water. Check on it constantly and turn down the heat once it starts to boil. Once heat is turned off, allow it to steam to finish the cooking process.


Key Takeaways:

  • Rinse the quinoa seeds in a fine strainer to remove the natural coating.
  • Season the cooking liquid by either using a “stock” or by adding salt or other aromatic spice to water.
  • Allow the quinoa to remain in the steamy pot after turning off the heat.
