“Watch film director David Lynch make his favorite quinoa recipe here: I tweaked it a little bit, estimating the amounts, following the cooking instructions on the quinoa package, and adding the bouillon before cooking.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rinse your quinoa well in a mesh strainer (David Lynch didn't do this, but it is supposed to make your quinoa less bitter).
  2. Add the quinoa to a small saucepan, along with 1 cup of water, 1 veggie bouillon cube, and a pinch of sea salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover, and cook for 7 minutes.
  3. Add the broccoli, cover again, and cook for 3 more minutes. Check the quinoa. If there is still water in the pan cook for 5 more minutes or until the water is absorbed.
  4. Transfer to a bowl. Add a Braggs Liquid Aminos and extra virgin olive oil to taste. Put on your favorite David Lynch movie, and enjoy!
