Pilaf-style quinoa

Serves 4

1 teaspoon canola oil
1 1/2 cups quinoa
3 cups chicken or vegetable stock
3/4 teaspoon salt
1. In a saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the quinoa and cook, stirring constantly, for 3 minutes or until the grains are lightly toasted.

2. Pour in the stock (watch out for sputtering oil) and the salt. Bring to a boil, stirring.

3. Lower the heat, cover the pan, and simmer the quinoa for 15 minutes, without stirring, or until the liquid is completely absorbed and the grain is tender but chewy. Fluff with a fork before serving.
