How to Make non-mushy quinoa
Marni Wasserman at the Toronto Vegetarian Food Fair demonstrates how to make non-mushy quinoa. The trick to making quinoa that doesn't come out in a big clump is to dry roast it. Take the quinoa and put it into a pot and put it over heat. Move the grains around until all the water is evaporated. You'll smell the nutty aroma of the quinoa as it's being dry roasted. Once the quinoa is dry roasted, add two cups of water to one cup of quinoa. Let that come to a boil with a little bit of sea salt for 12 to 15 minutes. Finally, turn off the heat and let it steam for a few minutes on a side burner to create the nicely textured quinoa.
