A question about a recipe: Black Bean and Quinoa Veggie Burgers

I have a question about the recipe "Black Bean and Quinoa Veggie Burgers" from Sonali aka the Foodie Physician. How much cooked quinoa typically results from cooking 1/2 cup dry quinoa?

1/2 cup of dry quinoa equals 2 cups of cooked quinoa.

In looking around online I've seen NYT say 1:4 and the Kitchn say 1:3. My guess is that different types swell more and it probably also depends on how long you cook it. I tend to drain mine as soon as the endosperm shows maybe 10 - 12 minutes rather than letting it go longer and absorb more. Also, I think the cream colored quinoa I have swells more than the red I have.
