Like most grains, we need to adjust the amount of liquid used when cooking quinoa in the solar oven.  Pro tip: starting with warm or hot liquid will shorten the the cooking time slightly. This recipe gives great results!


1.5 cups water or broth
1 cup quinoa
salt to taste


Place your Solavore Sport in the sun to preheat. Add quinoa, water and optional salt to your graniteware pot and stir to combine. Cover the pot and place in the solar oven. Let cook for 1.5 to 2 hours. You'll know it is done when all of the liquid is absorbed and the quinoa is fluffy.
