Default Quinoa

I have found a recipe for Peruvian Chicken Ragout that calls for Quinoa. I
have never heard of this grain before (I had to google it) and don't have it in
my pantry (yet). I'm not even sure it's considered a grain, some sites say
yes, some say no.
The recipe calls for 1/2 cup ... can I substitute barley instead? Or rice?
Would it still be 1/2 cup and would I cook it before adding it to the soup?
The recipe does not call for the quinoa to be precooked.
Thank you!
