Ingredients

  • 2

    tablespoons (30 ml) of olive oil

  • 1

    small onion, minced

  • 2

    cloves of garlic, minced

  • 1

    cup (250 ml) of quinoa, rinsed and drained

  • 2

    cups (500 ml) of chicken broth or water

  • a sprinkle or two of sea salt and freshly ground pepper

Directions

Pour the olive oil into a small saucepan with a tight-fitting lid over medium-high heat. Add the onion and garlic and saute for a few minutes until they just begin to turn golden brown. Add the quinoa and continue cooking for a few minutes longer, stirring constantly, until the quinoa is golden brown and toasted, about 5 minutes. This will add lots of aromatic flavour to the dish. Pour in the chicken broth or water, season with salt and pepper and bring to a simmer. Cover and cook until the liquid has been absorbed and the quinoa has unfurled and is tender, about 15 minutes. Let stand for about 5 minutes or so before serving.
