One part uncooked quinoa will end up with three times as much cooked quinoa. Rinse the quinoa for at least 30 seconds to get rid of the bitterness. In a small pot, combine the rinsed quinoa and water and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Then decrease to maintain a gentle simmer. Cook until the quinoa has absorbed all the water, about 10 to 20 minutes, depending on the amounts of quinoa. Remove from the heat and let stand, covered, for five minutes. Fluff the quinoa with a fork.
