2. Re-hydrate the mushrooms

Soak the dried pine Chilean (or porcini) mushrooms in a bowl of boiling water for at least 30 minutes.

3. Wash the quinoa

Rinse the quinoa under running cold water in a fine-mesh strainer or just put it in a pot with a lot of water, stir, and let it sit for 10-20 minutes. Pour off the water slowly (a few grains will float but most will stay down). Rinsing removes dust and quinoa’s natural coating (saponin), which makes it taste bitter or soapy.

4. Cook

Rinse and boil. Use the 2:1 liquid to quinoa ratio. Rinse again, if necessarily.
