Tan, red or black? Did you know they have different cooking times? In our cooking class with Cookbook Author Nettie Cronish, we'll cook quinoa in orange juice, vegetable stock, coconut milk, or water. An introduction to quinoa flour, puffs, pasta and other popular products will ensure you cook with confidence the next time you prepare a quinoa dish.
