Q: Can quinoa be cooked in the microwave? If so, what times should be used? (Like Uncle Ben’s Instant brown rice takes 12 minutes for 3 cups rice in 3 1/2 cups water) What would be the liquid and time for 1, 2, and 3 cups of quinoa?

Editor: DW, we haven’t used a microwave method for quinoa, but we’re curious whether others have.

Readers, have any of you tried cooking quinoa in the microwave? Any suggestions?
