Place the quinoa in a mesh strainer, and rinse it very well with clean running water.
After it is thoroughly rinsed, place the quinoa, 2 cups of liquid and salt in a medium-sized saucepan.
Turn the pan on high and bring to a boil.
Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium-low, cover with a tight lid, and allow to simmer for 20 minutes.
When 20 minutes is up, remove pan from the heat and remove the lid. Cover the pan with a dish towel and allow to sit for another 10 minutes.
Once that 10 minutes is up, remove the dish towel and fluff the quinoa with a fork.
