How to cook perfect quinoa

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

I made Quinoa a few weeks ago and several times since, I must say I fell in love with how good it is and how easy it is to cook.  This usually makes enough for one family meal leaving some for leftovers for lunch the next day (adding in a few steamed vegetables).  I’ll share some of my quinoa recipes with you soon.
