How to Cook Quinoa

Hey, guys. Bobby here and Happy New Year, my fellow YouTubers. If you guys haven’t broken you new years resolutions yet. I have the perfect video for you today. I’m going to show you how to make great Quinoa every single time. Let’s be honest. It’s not rocket science, but if you use a few of my tips, you’ll have fluffy consistent Quinoa every time that will make hipsters break down your door with excitement. Hey, before we get started, let’s start off that new year right and click on that subscribe button. I have new videos every two weeks and I want you to be a part of them. Also, I have some very exciting news. I just got back from the Tastemade Studios in LA and I was filming the Pepsi Game Day Challenge. Below in the subscription box, if you click on the video, it’ll take you to the very first episode which is my Game Day Slider recipe.

I went up against Megan Mitchell and my slide is mouth wateringly good. You guy got to check out the video, see if I won and let me know how you like that one too. To get our perfect Quinoa underway, I have a heavy bottom pot. To that I’m going to add 1 and 3-quarters a cup of water, about a half a teaspoon of kosher salt right in there. I’d say the juice of about a third of a lime. That acid really perks up the flavor of the Quinoa. Perfect. Last but not least, the star of our show. Today I’m using white Quinoa. White Quinoa is just a little bit different from black and red Quinoa. It cooks a bit quicker and the texture isn’t as crunchy.

How to Cook Quinoa

It’s usually my go-to in my pantry but you can use any one you want. I’m going to put 1 cup of Quinoa in there. Next up, I’m going to whack the heat to high, bring to a boil, and reduce to a simmer for about 20 to 22 minutes. Like I said, making Quinoa isn’t that hard. Most recipes I found usually call for 2 parts water to 1 part Quinoa and that usually ends up in a soggy, mushy produce. That is not good for hipsters and it’s not for me. What I do is 1 part Quinoa to 1.75 parts water.

The nice thing about making Quinoa as opposed to rice is you can add more water at the end. Whereas rice, you can’t really do that. I always say start with less and you could always add more. If it’s already mushy, there’s no way to bring that back. It’s been 22 minutes and you can see most all the water has evaporated.

This is that point where I take it one more minute just to really evaporate all that moisture from the Quinoa and that helps make a really fluffy grain. There’s a reason why they call this stuff a super food. Not only is it complex grain that’s gluten-free and organic, it is kosher. I usually make a big batch of this on Sunday nights and throughout the week, I throw it in salads, I pop it in stir-fries, any way I can get my Quinoa fix.
