Expert Tips

Quinoa is high in protein, low in fat and cooks quickly, making it a great grain to use.

As is, this recipe works well as a side dish; to make it a main dish, double the serving size.

Directions

  • 1 Rinse quinoa thoroughly by placing in a fine-mesh strainer and holding under cold running water until water runs clear; drain well.
  • 2 In 2-quart saucepan, heat broth to boiling. Add quinoa; reduce heat to low. Cover; simmer 15 to 20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed.
  • 3 Fluff quinoa with fork. Stir in remaining ingredients. Cook uncovered about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly heated.
