  2. Wash quinoa in 3 changes of cold water in a bowl, draining in a sieve each time.

  3. Cook quinoa in a medium pot of boiling salted water (1 tablespoon salt for 2 quarts water), uncovered, until almost tender, about 10 minutes. Drain in sieve, then set sieve in same pot with 1 inch of simmering water (water should not touch bottom of sieve).

Remove pot from heat and remove lid. Let stand, still covered with towel, 5 minutes.
