Basic Quinoa

We were introduced to Quinoa b/c of N's Allergies, and we have all come to love it. N even asks for "more quinoa please" not bad for a 2 year old. I personally prefer the red quinoa in flavor to the white, but both are nutritionally adequate.
1 cup quinoa
3 cups warm filtered water plus 2 tbsp whey, yogurt, or buttermilk
(if allergic to dairy use 2 tbsp lemon juice or vinegar)

Soak Quinoa for 12 hours in a warm place. After soaking, drain and rinse the grain. Place in a stainless steal pot with 2 cups water. Bring to a rapid boil, cover and reduce to a medium heat until cooked and water is gone. The little white insides will be exposed.
