READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by jenpalombi

Quinoa is something that I always make for one since my husband has ZERO interest in it. Consequently, I'm always making it in addition to whatever side dish the rest of the family is having. So for me, quinoa needs to be super simple and tasty. Here is how I do it most often.

Very good! Makes a nice flavor change from the basic quinoa, but just as easy to make.
