One of my favorite cooking tricks is making quinoa in the rice cooker.  I can simply add the quinoa and liquid to the cooking pot and set it to cook.

With over 200 easy and delicious dinner ideas, you'll never have to worry about what to make for dinner again.

I don’t have to fuss over the stove.  Plus, because the Hamilton Beach Rice and Hot Cereal Cooker has a delayed start feature, I can put everything in the pot, set it and go about my day while the quinoa cooks.

This rice cooker has a special setting just for  grains, like quinoa.  It also works great for farro and wheat berries – like this Balsamic Wheat Berry Farro Salad. You can even use it to make oatmeal, too.

It also has a setting for oatmeal or grits.  Again, you can set it before bed and wake up to perfectly cooked oatmeal.

I really like this rice cooker because, in addition to perfectly fluffy rice, you can make an entire meal in it – like this Shrimp and Grits.

The Hamilton Beach Rice and Hot Cereal Cooker really makes it easy to cook quinoa.  I always have some on hand for this Tex Mex Quinoa Salad Bowl or this Balsamic Quinoa Salad.
