If you know how to cook pasta, you can cook quinoa without any trouble. Unlike rice, you don’t have to worry about it sticking to the bottom of your pan. One thing you do need to know is that you need to rise quinoa before you cook it. This removes the saponin from the exterior and prevents your quinoa from having a bitter taste.
Place the milk or water together with the cup of quinoa into a saucepan and bring to the boil, turn down the heat and simmer gently for approximately 15 minutes, less simmer time if you wish for the quinoa grain to have a little crunch to its texture. Add a spoonful peanut butter to the pan and stir in. Transfer contents of the pan to a serving dish and serve hot. You can add a little garnish to this dish in the form of strawberries, sliced banana or even thin slices of honeydew melon (optional).
