Cooking quinoa without the draining

pumpkinspice | Jan 15, 201805:06 AM

I bought a package of golden quinoa at Costco (Canada) and the instructions say 1 cup a quinoa to 4 cups water, but then to drain. I like cooking quinoa that have precise measurements that I just have to fluff with a work and done (it just saves me time and mess when I am making large batches for lunches for the week). Any tips of revamping measurements?
I (stupidly) decided to add in more quinoa towards the end in hopes of absorbing some more water and I ended up with a gigantic clumpy wet mess which I had to throw out.
