Quinoa is quite easy to prepare. It can be combined with fruits or
 vegetables to make a high-protein breakfast, gluten-free lunch or 
nutritional dinner dishes. Quinoa is coated with saponin, a bitter substance that protects the seeds.  Many brands wash off this coating, but to be sure, before cooking, soak quinoa
in warm water for 5 minutes and make sure you
 rinse it really well.

Combine 1 cup of quinoa with 1 1/2 cup of water or broth and bring to
 boil. Reduce to low heat and let simmer for 15 minutes or until the
 water evaporates. You can see the germ separate from the seed and the
 grain should look like a tiny curl.

Cover it with a lid and let it stand for additional 10 minutes to 
achieve a fluffy texture.
