Fluffy Quinoa

Plain quinoa becomes so fluffy and tasty with Kamado-san

Equipment

Double-lid donabe rice cooker, "Kamado-san" (1 rice-cup size)

Servings

2-3

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (240 ml) quinoa, rinsed and drained
  • 1 1/2 cups (360 ml) water

Procedure

  1. Combine the quinoa and water in "Kamado-san".
  2. Cover with both lids and cook over medium-heat for 20-25 minutes. Turn off the heat and let it rest undisturbed for 15-20 minutes.
  3. Fluff with a spatula and serve.

If you’re not sure if the quinoa is cooked in your first try, after 20 minutes, quickly open lids and check the inside. If the water is almost completely absorbed, you can turn off the heat and let it rest (with both covers on). Otherwise, cook a little longer.

The texture of each grain becomes so nice when cooked in donabe.
