This herbed coconut milk quinoa is a simple yet elegant side dish that makes the best use of any fresh savory herbs you might have in your garden. Coconut milk complements the nutty flavor of quinoa.
Until recently I always rinsed, rather than soaked my quinoa, though I routinely soak grains and beans. Quinoa needs to be rinsed to remove bitterness but soaking increases that bitterness. Now some quinoa is sold pre-rinsed, so be sure to check your packaging to find out if is has been. Costco sells one type that has been rinsed already.
