  • Cook quinoa as directed on package, adding garlic to the cooking water along with the quinoa.
  • Add remaining ingredients; cook and stir 1 to 2 min. or until cheese is completely melted.

Cooking Know-How

Before cooking, the quinoa should be rinsed to remove the bitter resin-like powdery coating, called saponin. Saponin forms soapy-looking "suds" when the seeds are rinsed in water.

Food Facts

In South America, when saponin is removed from the quinoa, it is used as a laundry detergent or as an antiseptic for skin injuries.

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The prep time includes measuring and mincing. The prep time includes measuring and mincing. The minced garlic goes in the cooking water with the quinoa. Most quinoa is ready in 15 -20 minutes, so the recipe shouldn't take that long if the quinoa is already rinsed. I made a version of this with Swiss cheese and powdered garlic. I needed some idea of what to put in quinoa to make it taste like something intentional. It was good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This recipe was great. This recipe was great. I am not a big quinoa fan, and find it hard to eat unless you really spice it up. I only used a 1/2 cup quinoa as there is just two of us, 1 & 1/2 cup chicken broth, garlic salt and 2 cloves garlic, brought to a boil and simmered for 20 mins, added 1/2 cup of cheddar cause I didn't have mozzarella and voila, easy tasty cheesy quinoa! Thank you!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This recipe is a mess! This recipe is a mess! It says it takes five minutes but calls for uncooked quinoa and I guess you just throw raw minced garlic in?
