Cook your quinoa per package directions replacing a portion of the water with one can of beef broth, also add 2 microplaned cloves of garlic into the quinoa. I cook my quinoa in a rice cooker and love the results. I also like to add the peal of a citrus fruit to the quinoa in the cooker or pot, it just add something to the flavor.
Today most quinoa is pre-rinsed for the best flavor. Rinsing the grains will help to remove any saponins remaining. Saponins taste like soap so if I don't know the brand well I always give the grains a rinse just in case.
