Rinse quinoa in a bowl for three minutes, using fingers to agitate grains. Quinoa has a coating of bitter saponin that needs to be removed before cooking, and agitating while rinsing will help remove it.
In a 5-quart pot, add salt to water and bring to a boil. Add quinoa and cook for 15 minutes, or until grains are cooked through but still hold their shape without being mushy. Serve immediately, covered with osso bucco.
