Author's Notes

An essential piece of equipment for cooking quinoa is a fine-meshed sieve. You need this piece of gear for both rinsing the quinoa before you cook it and for draining the quinoa after you cook it.
Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Bring a pot of water to boil. Meanwhile, place Quinoa (1 cup) in a sieve and rinse under cold water. When water boils, add quinoa and simmer for 9 minutes. Drain in an fine-mesh sieve and run under cold water until cool. Set aside to dry.

Prepare the remaining ingredients: Slice the Sugar Snap Peas (1 cup) on a bias and set aside. Roughly chop the Cashew Nuts (1/2 cup). Slice the Scallion (1 bunch) thinly. Remove the seeds from the Serrano Chilis (2), then finely dice.
