Versatile Quinoa Pilaf

After many quinoa recipes that didn't really do it for me I think I've nailed it. This is by far the best quinoa recipe I've had. It's a combination of a few ideas and makes a yummy fluffy quinoa pilaf. Similar in texture to cous cous or rice. Tinned tomatoes can be used just make sure you have the 4 cups
