  1. Place the water, butter, five-spice powder, ginger, black pepper, and beef bouillon cube into a saucepan over medium heat, and bring to a boil. Stir the mixture to dissolve the bouillon cube, then add the quinoa. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover, and cook until all the water is absorbed, about 20 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note
  • I used Roland® brand for the red quinoa, and Knorr® for the bouillon cube. I also prefer the quinoa a little underdone. Hope you enjoy this.

Very simple, very tasty. Thank you. BTW when you change a recipe by decreasing the spices in it, well it's not quite fair to call it bland, now is it?

The Chinese five-spice flavor was over whelming. Unless you want a very strong flavor of 5-spice cut the amount added. I will make it again and add only enough 5-spice to taste a hint of it.

I used the full amount of spice with white quinoa. What a great dish! Oops, I used my garam masala instead of Chinese 5-spice. Sorry...I just have to rate it because it was so fragrantly good. B...

Not for us. Decreased the amount of 5-spice and it was very bland. Could only remotely taste a bit of cinnamon.
