Place the quinoa in a large bowl; fill with cold water. Drain into a strainer and repeat the rinsing and draining 4 more times. Over medium-high heat, heat the oil in a 2-quart saucepan. Add the rinsed quinoa and cook, stirring, until the quinoa makes cracking and popping noises, about 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the water, marjoram, thyme, and rosemary. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer, covered, 15 minutes. Stir in the parsley, lemon juice, salt, lemon rind, and pepper. Simmer, covered, 5 minutes longer. Fluff with a fork.
