or vegetable stock
1. Rinse the quinoa several times in a bowl of cold water to remove the saponin (its bitter protective coating), draining it each time in a fine sieve.
2. Bring the water or stock to a boil in a saucepan, then add a dash of salt and the quinoa. Lower the heat, cover the pan, and simmer until the liquid is absorbed and the spiral of the germ is visible, about 12 to 15 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes.
3. Toss with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
