Step 1

In a medium saucepan, bring the broth to a boil.

Add the quinoa, reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 12 to 15 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed. Remove from the heat, cover and let stand for 15 minutes. Fluff with a fork and transfer to a large bowl.

In a medium frying pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion, pepper and garlic and cook just until tender. Add the onion mixture, basil and optional herbs to the quinoa. Season with salt and pepper. This dish can be served hot or cold.
