- How to cook quinoa; Fill saucepan with 2 cups of water and uncooked quinoa, bring to a boil and let it simmer until the quinoa absorbs all the water, approx. 10-15 minutes. Turn off the burner and removed from heat with a lid until all the water is absorbed and it reaches a cool enough temperature to be put in the fridge.
- Refrigerate until cool. I left mine in over night because I cooked the quinoa the day before our family party and put all the ingredients together the morning of the party.
- Add remaining ingredients (minus the cilantro and the toppings)
- Stir in cilantro just before serving.
- Serve with toppings.
