Easy-Peasy Quinoa


  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups peas (fresh or frozen)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Preparation Instructions

  1. Cook the quinoa—Bring stock to boil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add quinoa, then reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer until stock is absorbed, 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from heat and fluff with a fork.
  2. Meanwhile, sauté the onions and peas—Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Sauté onion until translucent. Stir in peas and cook until heated through.
  3. Finish the quinoa—Stir cooked quinoa into the peas until evenly distributed. Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
