Measuring Uncooked Quinoa For Recipes

There are no special tips on how to measure out necessary amount of quinoa, as the method stays the same for all the grains. You need to take a dry measuring cup and fill it with uncooked quinoa. Try being careful not to pack it inside vigorously. Moreover, do not forget to level off quinoa in a measuring cup or spoon using any utensil (knife, fork, etc., anything sharp will do).

If you want to know how much uncooked quinoa to use, depending on the amount of cooked quinoa you need, then I have a simple principle for you to follow. Quinoa triples in size when cooked. So, if you take one cup of uncooked quinoa, you will get about three cups after boiling quinoa. Or if you need 1 ½ cups of cooked quinoa, then you get half of a cup of uncooked quinoa.

We hope that all the given information was helpful. We listed data on how many grams and ounces of uncooked quinoa are in one metric tablespoon, how much is 1 cup of quinoa in grams (using three different measuring cups).
