“A four fork recipe from Gourmet Magazine, May 2003 I have posted as the recipe was written, but I only used one cup of quinoa to 2 cups of water, and cooked in the microwave as I do white rice (5 minutes on high, 12 minutes on 50% power, stand time of 10 minutes, then fluff gently with chopsticks or a fork). Stove top or rice cooker would work well also. I think with adding a dressing, steaming is unnecessary. I did use mangoes, and loved the taste, but one reviewer suggested substituting apples, cashews and raisins, and I think that might be interesting too when mangoes are unavailable.”

Set sieve with quinoa over a saucepan containing 1 1/2 inches boiling water (sieve should not touch water) and steam quinoa, covered with a kitchen towel and lid, until fluffy and dry, 10 to 12 minutes.
