would be 'nice' if this recipe included the directions - basic directions: Rinse and drain the quinoa. Place quinoa in a small saucepan and add the milk, seasonings of choice and a pinch of salt. Bring to a high simmer, cover and reduce heat to a low simmer for 15 minutes. (Tip: don't walk away, if it starts bubbling, turn the heat off, give it one stir mid-cook if you need to, and resume). After 15 minutes, remove the pan from the heat and let the quinoa sit for 5 more minutes or until the milk is absorbed and the quinoa is cooked. Taste and add additional spices/ingredients to your liking."
