How to make quiona in the Thermomix the easy way.



  • 1000 g water
  • 50 g quinoa


  1. Insert the simmering basket into the mixing bowl and weigh in the quinoa. Rinse the quinoa under a cold tap. This removes the natural coating called saponin which can make it taste bitter. Store bought quinoa is often pre-rinsed but it doesn’t hurt to give it another go.
  2. Add the water and insert the basket back into the bowl and cook for 18 mins/varoma/speed 2 with the MC on.
  3. When the 18 minutes is up, check the quinoa is cooked if not cook for another couple of minutes or so.
  4. Take out of mixing bowl and fluffy up with a fork before serving.


I find that 50g is enough for one serve.  If you would like to cook more Thermomix Quinoa, the instructions stay the same.
