Is black quinoa harder to cook?
Black quinoa takes the longest to cook, has the strongest nutty flavor, and is more coarse and crunchy. Keep in mind that if you have three bags, one of each color, the oldest back will be the longest to cook and the crunchiest. So, you’ll want to work with fresh quinoa.
Do you cook quinoa covered or uncovered?
Transfer quinoa to a medium pot with water (or broth) and salt. Bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer, uncovered, until quinoa is tender and a white “tail” appears around each grain, about 15 minutes. Cover and set aside off the heat for 5 minutes; uncover and fluff with a fork.
How do you know when red quinoa is cooked?
Cook until water is completely absorbed and quinoa is tender – about 12-18 minutes. Drain off any excess water if there is any. I like to turn off the heat and remove the lid for 10 minutes so the quinoa gets fluffier. Then return the lid to keep warm until serving.
