Simple Quinoa Pilaf
- 1 tsp. vegetable oil
- 1/2 C. chopped onion
- 1 C. quinoa
- 2 C. vegetable or chicken broth (1 can plus water to equal 2 C.)
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.
