  3. Fill another pot with 2 cups of water or chicken stock and bring to a boil.
  4. Add the quinoa and return to a boil.
  5. Cover and reduce heat to a simmer until the liquid has absorbed and the quinoa is just slightly translucent and soft. Remove from heat.

  7. You may add the quinoa to the food in the food processor or mix in after puréeing for more texture.
