Rinse quinoa well through the simmering basket and insert simmering basket into the Thermomix bowl. Add enough water over the top of the quinoa so you can see the water as you tip the bowl.
Steam 19 min/100°C/speed 4. Drain.
Preheat the oven to 160°C. Line a baking tray with paper. Spread the steamed quinoa evenly across the paper and drizzle with the EVOO.
Bake 25 minutes. Add fennel and salt and stir well. Return to the oven, reduce the temperature to 150°C for another 30 minutes and allow the quinoa to cool with the oven switched off and the door slightly ajar.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge to use as just a garnish.
