ABOUT THE RECIPE:
Quick Quinoa is an easy and delicious recipe for quinoa. Try making a double batch to have on hand for stuffing mushrooms, zucchini or peppers, or for using in casseroles, soups and salads.
MAKES 3 TO 4 SERVINGS
1 cup uncooked quinoa, rinsed thoroughly

1/2 large vegan bouillon cube, crumbled (see note)
Put all of the ingredients into a medium-sized saucepan. Cover and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Decrease the heat to medium-low, cover and cook for 15 to 17 minutes, or until all of the water is absorbed. Remove the quinoa from heat, uncover and gently fluff with a fork.

CHEF’S NOTE: If desired, you may use 2 cups of prepared vegetable broth in place of the water and bouillon cube.
