Rinse the quinoa and add to a pot with the water and salt.
Bring to a rapid boil.
Reduce heat to low and let simmer, uncovered, until most of the liquid is absorbed.
After about 15 minutes or when the liquid is absorbed, remove from the heat and cover.
Let steam for about 10 minutes to finish cooking.
Fluff with a fork and enjoy!
Once prepared, cooked quinoa will keep in the fridge for about 1 week.
While cooking, quinoa expands by about 3 times. So, 1 cup of dry quinoa will yield about 3 cups of cooked quinoa.
For more flavor, you can use vegetable or chicken broth in place of water.
