In 12-inch skillet, toast quinoa on medium 5 minutes or until fragrant and golden, stirring frequently. Stir 2 1/2 cups water and 1/2 teaspoon salt into toasted quinoa; heat to boiling on high. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 15 to 17 minutes or until all water is absorbed.
Meanwhile, in small bowl, stir together soy sauce, rice vinegar, oil, ginger, green onions, and remaining 1 tablespoon water. Transfer quinoa to large serving bowl. Stir in soy sauce mixture until quinoa is evenly coated. Sprinkle with toasted almonds to serve.
