Hot Quinoa Side Dish Recipe

  • 2 cups Quinoa (Red, White, or mix 1/2 and 1/2)
  • 4 cups broth, chicken or vegetable
  • 1/2 yellow onion, finely diced (medium)
  • 1/2 cup Celery, finely diced
Rinse the Quinoa with a fine strain (FYI - Ancient Harvest brand is pre-rinsed). Combine the Quinoa, broth, onions, and celery into a pot and stir. Bring contents to a boil and stir again. Reduce heat to simmer and cook until all moisture is absorbed (approximately 10-15 minutes). Fluff with a fork and serve as a replacement for rice or potatoes.

Note: Quinoa is very versatile and absorbs flavors well. Consider replacing the broth with 1/2 water and 1/2 apple juice to serve with pork. Or add 1 tsp. of cinnamon and 1/2 cup of diced dried apricots to give it a Mediterranean flavor.
