In a medium sized pot, add your water. While bringing to a boil, rinse your quinoa to remove phytic acid.
Add quinoa to boiling water. Turn heat down to medium-low. Add in everything except the cilantro and EVOO. Reduce heat to low, cover and let cook for 20-25 minutes.
When all liquid has been absorbed, remove from heat. Fold in cilantro and EVOO. Salt and pepper to taste.
