Oil for the pan

juice of 1 lemon (start with ½ lemon, see if you want more)

*how to cook quinoa:

Add the quinoa and water to a pot, bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium/medium low, letting the quinoa cook on a low simmer for about 20 minutes (with the lid on partially). Add a lil more water if it evaporates too quickly and you hear the quinoa sizzling. Then remove from the heat, put the lid on fully and let it steam through for another 10+ minutes or until the quinoa is fully soft. (or overnight if choosing to do this step the night before)
