Perfectly Cooked Quinoa
The paper towel to catch the moisture is key here.
1 cup quinoa
1 3/4 cup water
1. Rinse or soak the quinoa before cooking.
2. Place the quinoa, water and a hearty pinch of salt in a large pot over high heat. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat to a simmer. Cover and cook for about 15 minutes until all of the liquid is absorbed (but the quinoa is still wet) and the germs have begun to spiral.
3. Turn off the heat, place a dry paper towel between the pot and the lid, and let sit for at least 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork before serving.
This dish feels like a carbo load but is completely grain free. Add whatever vegetables you have on hand, or try adding cooked chicken or fish. Depending on the size of your cauliflower, you will probably have leftover cauliflower "rice." Save this and use it for the cauliflower black...
