Place a teaspoon or two of the quinoa filling among the leaf and overlay the base and sides over the filling, at that point, firmly move it and place it with the crease down.

(Don’t over stuff the leaves, since the quinoa extends somewhat during cooking).

To cook the stuffed leaves, put a portion of the torn unused leaves on the base of a pot, to shield the stuffed leaves from consuming amid cooking.

Ensure you have them firmly stuffed by one another with the goal that they won’t unravel during cooking.

Pour in the chicken broth to cover the stuffed grape leaves.
