Making quinoa in your rice cooker is a fast and easy way to get perfectly cooked quinoa!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups water or broth

Instructions

  1. Rinse your quinoa.
  2. Pour the quinoa and broth or water into the rice cooker. If you’re not sure what you’re going to use it for, you might want to just use water. If you know your future plan, broth can be a good option to give it more flavor.

Notes

Don’t remove the lid while the quinoa is cooking.

Once it’s done, fluff it with a fork before serving.
