    1 1/2   tb           Vegetable oil
    2       c            -Water
      3/4   ts           Dried marjoram or oregano

   Place the quinoa in a large bowl; fill with cold

   saucepan.  Add the rinsed quinoa and cook, stirring,
   until the quinoa makes cracking and popping noises,
   about 3 to 5 minutes.  Stir in the water, marjoram,
   thyme, and rosemary.  Bring to a boil, reduce the
   heat, and simmer, covered, 15 minutes.

   with a fork.
