  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 cup white (or yellow) quinoa, rinsed
  • 2 cup chicken broth

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, garlic and quinoa to oil., stirring until quinoa is lightly toasted. Pour broth into the pan and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer until quinoa is tender, about 25 minutes. A white “halo” around the quinoa grains is a sign that they are done cooking. Remove from heat.
