Learn how to cook quinoa in a rice cooker! Not only is quinoa a great nutrition source, it's easy to cook when using a rice cooker. Learn how here.
*If cooking in a rice cooker without the “QUINOA” setting, please refer to our grains page here for instructions on how to cook quinoa in your rice cooker.
Measure quinoa accurately using the measuring cup that came with your rice cooker. Fill quinoa above the brim, then level off the cup. Now add to the inner cooking pan.
Rinse the quinoa a few times with water. Use a fine mesh strainer if needed.
Slowly add water to the corresponding water level for “QUINOA”. Stir lightly to make sure the quinoa is submerged and leveled to ensure even cooking.
Wipe off excess water from the outside of the inner cooking pan and place in the rice cooker. Close the lid securely and plug in the rice cooker. Select the “QUINOA” setting and press START.
When cooking completes, open the lid and use the nonstick rice spatula to fluff and serve your quinoa. Enjoy!
