Quinoa is a grain kinda like couscous just with a little more natural flavor. I love the way my mom makes it! And tonight i tried to make it my self. I boiled a cup of water then poured in half a cup of quinoa. i let it cook with the cover on the pot, the stove was set on low for the cooking part, for about 15 mins. it turned out alright! Not as good as mom’s but good! I think it needs salt but that’s just me. And the brand I used is trūRoots. Happy cooking!
