Simple Quinoa
   1 cup quinoa
   2 cups water or broth
   1/2 teaspoon salt (reduce to a pinch if using broth)

Quinoa can also be made in an electric Pressure Cooker and is the versatile star of many dishes

Rinse quinoa thoroughly in a fine mesh stainer, or by swirling in several changes of water, then drain. Add quinoa, water (or broth) and salt to the inner bowl of your rice cooker and push Cook button. Use white rice setting, if applicable.

When rice cooker switches to Keep Warm, turn off or unplug your machine. Allow quinoa to rest, without opening rice cooker, for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and serve.
