  • Total Time


  • Servings



  • * ½ cup quinoa

  • * 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth

  • * 2 teaspoons olive oil

  • * ½ large onion, chopped

  • * 2 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted in a dry skillet over medium-high heat until golden brown, 2 minutes

  • * 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped


Bring quinoa and broth to a boil in a medium saucepan. Reduce heat to low; cover; simmer until quinoa absorbs liquid, about 15 minutes. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook, stirring occasionally, until onion begins to brown, about 6 minutes. When quinoa is done, fluff with a fork and transfer to a serving bowl. Stir in onion, pine nuts and parsley. Season with salt and pepper.
