     Spiced Fluffy Quinoa

Category   Entrees - Maindishes
Sub Category   Vegetarian
Servings   4

Ingredients
1 cup - 2 Tbsp dry, unrinsed quinoa
1 2/3 cup water
2 tsp citrus herbed coarse sea salt
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp cayenne
1 tsp coriander
1 tsp garlic powder
optional- 1 tsp Olive Oil
 

Instructions
Measure out your quinoa. Add to a larger bowl and begin the rinsing process. I do 2-3 rinses. To rinse- fill the bowl with water, swirl the quinoa around a bit and carefully drain off the top water. The quinoa acts like sand a bit - a few grains float to the top, but they mostly sink to the bottom of the bowl. Repeat and repeat. You'll notice the water gets less murky after the final rinse.
Place your spices in a prep bowl and set aside. Measure out about 1 and 2/3 cups of water - set aside. Toss your dry spices with the rinsed/drained quinoa until each quinoa grain is well coated with light spice. The wetness of the quinoa allows the spices to easily stick.
Toss your dry spices with the rinsed/drained quinoa until each quinoa grain is well coated with light spice. The wetness of the quinoa allows the spices to easily stick. Bring quinoa/water to a boil. Cover pot with lid. Reduce heat to a simmer. Walk away for 12-15 minutes.
Place your large pot on stove and turn on heat. You can either add the water and bring to a boil. Or you can toast the spiced/rinsed quinoa in the dry pan, heat on, for a few minutes to bring out the nuttiness of the quinoa and spices. Your call. Today I simply boiled my water, then add my quinoa - it was yummy. Bring quinoa/water to a boil. Cover pot with lid. Reduce heat to a simmer. Walk away for 12-15 minutes.After around 12-15 minutes, walk over to the stove and turn the heat off. Walk away again. After about 5-10 minutes remove the lid allowing a lot of steam to escape in a gush. Instant quinoa steam facial.
