Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium saucepan, toast quinoa over medium heat, stirring, until golden brown and beginning to pop, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in broth and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, until broth has been absorbed and quinoa is translucent, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl and allow to cool slightly.
