Ingredients

Directions

Heat the fat in a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium-high heat. Saute the onion until translucent and fragrant. Add the quinoa and stir to coat. Add the liquid and bring to a simmer for about 20 minutes, until the liquid is absorbed and the quinoa is tender. Combine with the herbs, spices, or seasonings and season with salt, and pepper, to taste.

Quinoa Pilaf Variations:

Coconut-Lime Quinoa: Cook the quinoa in 1 cup coconut milk and 1 cup chicken broth. Season the quinoa with fresh lime zest and lime juice.

Mediterranean Quinoa: When the quinoa has finished cooking, add chopped fresh parsley, diced tomatoes, kalamata olives, fresh lemon juice and zest. Top with feta cheese.

Lemon-Thyme Quinoa: Cook the quinoa in 1/4 cup lemon juice and 1 3/4 cups chicken broth. Season the quinoa with chopped fresh thyme leaves.
