Simple Quinoa Pilaf


(0 votes) 0 0

Quinoa is a delicious grain with a very slight crunch and a delicate, almost floral flavor. It can be found in some supermarkets or (more cheaply) in the bulk section of natural-foods stores.

Heat the oil in a pt with a tightly fitting lid. Add the chopped onion and saute until translucent. Rinse the quinoa well in a strainer, drain, and add to pot. Saute, stirring, until the quinoa begins to smell nutty. Add the broth and bring to a rolling boil. Cover and reduce heat. Cook at a low boil (higher than a simmer) for 15-20 minutes or more, until quinoa is tender.
