    i came and heard about this cuz if family guy, like if u did too

  2. Alcid008 says:

    Oh, I lost my power of telepathy, and I can't read you mind. You know like how much water and Quinoa you used.

  3. after rinsing my quinoa I had some change in plans and ended not cooking them.. the problem is, after one day of rinsing it started sprouting.. what can I do now? is my quinoa ruined or I can use it in a recipe?

  4. This was not useful, she gave no measurements

  5. I hate when they don't say how much water. I need exact measurements

  7. Lupe Salazar says:

    why would you not just put the ratio of ingredients, and how long to cook it. waste of time video

  8. opannefrank says:

    OMG this is the same music used in that perverted Toy Family channel.

  9. do you let the quinoa dry after rinsing before cooking? you said to mix the oil in and sort of toast it for a bit but that would be hard wet?

  10. yourtub says:

    i soak it in my own urine then eat it raw delicious

  11. for Quinoa call 9911105563

  12. Some good tasty food like this needs some brutal death metal!!!! Technical death metal if vegan!!!!

  13. Khaled Jb says:

    How long do you have to keep the quinoa boiling at a high heat before you reduce it to low? Thanks for the vid.

  14. Mars Violet says:

    Rinsing the quinoa like that could not only leave some of that coating on, but waste water. It's best if you just wash it in a bowl and throw out the water.

  15. Omg I love how HowToBasic used that generic whistling music they all use

  16. Omg! Thank you so much! It was delicious! FYI It is the first time that I cook. ❤️❤️❤️

  17. skylabx2000 says:

    the most important part about cooking it is the water ratio because that is where people mess up & have it finishing up looking like porridge

  18. Alice Cross says:

    Thank you so much! This turned out really good.

  19. "you're gonna wanna.." you can "go ahead"

  20. Johnny Mao says:
