1. Rinse quinoa thoroughly with cold, running water.  Bring stock/juice mixture to boil in a small pot, add the quinoa and salt and bring to a boil again.  Cover and reduce heat to low for 15 minutes.  Turn off the heat and keep the pot covered for an additional 5 minutes.  Strain off any excess liquid and spread the quinoa out to cool on a tray while preparing the remaining ingredients.
