How to cook quinoa on the stovetop, rice cooker, and Instant Pot. The best quinoa recipes from salads, to casseroles, and breakfast quinoa.

I’ve been asked a few times recently about cooking perfect fluffy quinoa. Several friends mentioned that their quinoa often turns out too mushy, and others had questions about the most delicious ways to use quinoa. Some just said they plain didn’t like it and wondered if there is a way to make it “taste good.” I get it – quinoa can be a little “blah” but it can be a really tasty, filling, nutritious ingredient too. 

So I put together this comprehensive post all about quinoa: how to cook quinoa, tips and tricks, and my favorite quinoa recipes! You can think of this as the cousin to my How to Cook Lentils + the Best Lentil Recipes post! Be sure to pin this post to Pinterest, as I plan to add more quinoa recipes as I make them!
