  1. Rinse your quinoa in a sieve. Set the quinoa and water in a stovetop to boil, or add the water and quinoa to a rice cooker to begin cooking.
  2. When the water boils, reduce to a simmer. Cook at a simmer with a lid on the pot, but slightly ajar, so that some air can escape, for about 20 minutes, or until the liquid has evaporated and the quinoa is getting plump and fluffy. Quinoa cooking times can vary, but 15 minutes is average. You know it’s done with the quinoa is nice and plump, and little “threads” have come loose in the grain.
  3. While quinoa is cooking, slice avocado, chop seaweed, basil, and kale. When quinoa is cooked, stir in the kale, lemon, nutritional yeast, basil, seaweed, and an extra 2-3 tbsp water (or more if your quinoa is dry). Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve warm, topped with some avocado slices. Enjoy.
