To cook white quinoa, start by thoroughly rinsing it under running water until the water runs clear. In a pot, add a cup of quinoa and two cups of water or stock, cover the pot and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to simmer until all liquid is absorbed, about 15-20 minutes. White quinoa can be served hot or cold as a salad base or a bed for stews and stir-fries. It is a great substitute for other rices, quinoas and couscous to provide a little exotic colouring and extra nutty crunch.
