Cardamom Scented Quinoa

This is my go to recipe for quinoa. I use it for nearly all of my quinoa needs. Quinoa is fabulous on it’s own too, but there’s just something about the flowery, spicy aroma of this quinoa that blow’s my mind, and so, I make. A lot.

It’s really, really easy. To a medium pot add 1 1/3 cups water, 3 crushed cardamom pods, a pinch of salt and a pinch of cinnamon. Bring this to a boil and add 3/4 cup of quinoa. Cover and lower heat to medium-low. Cook for about 10 minutes or until all of the moisture has been absorbed.
