quinoa seeds



1 Tablespoon butter

1 cup uncooked quinoa

2 cups vegetable broth

2 teaspoons chopped garlic

2 Tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

½ Tablespoons chopped fresh thyme

¼ teaspoon salt

1 small onion, finely chopped

1 dash fresh lemon juice


Melt butter in saucepan over medium heat. Add the quinoa, and toast, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in broth, and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook for 15 minutes, or until quinoa is light and fluffy and water is absorbed. Let stand covered for 5 minutes.

In a bowl, toss quinoa together with garlic, parsley, thyme, salt, and onion. Sprinkle with lemon juice, and serve.
