Fluffy & Flavorful Quinoa



  1. Using a fine mesh sieve, rinse the quinoa under cold water. Set quinoa aside and allow to dry (approximately 1 hour).
  2. Heat a small sauce pan to medium-high. Pour the quinoa into the pan with the olive oil and allow to toast for a minute or two. Stir constantly to prevent burning.
  3. Add in the vegetable broth (or water if you prefer water), Mrs. Dash, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, and cracked black pepper and stir.
  4. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for about 10-12 minutes.
  5. Remove the lid and fluff up the quinoa with a fork. If you still see a little liquid in the pan, cover and allow to simmer for another minute or two.
  6. Enjoy! Read: commence face plant.
