No need to stir a pot on the burner an hope for the best when my easy/simple method works to perfection 100 % of the time.!!! This recipe has been kitchen tested many times.!!! Wash 200 g quinoa... drain for a minute an then put in a large bowl.!!! Add 645 g water.!!! Cover bowl wit plastic wrap designed for high temps or use a double layer of regular plastic wrap.!!! In a 900 watt microwave cook on high for 20 minutes... or in a 1250 watt microwave cook on high for 14 minutes an then let it set for at least 15 minutes.!!! Then fluff it wit a fork.!!! It will be tender but not mushy... perfect.!!! ~Thank you.!!!
