We loved this! I've been looking for more ways to incorporate quinoa into my diet and this will be a frequent repeat. I didn't have garlic oil, so I just added 1/4 tsp garlic powder to some olive oil and that worked well. Thanks for posting!

  1. Rinse quinoa thoroughly.
  2. Bring broth to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add quinoa, reduce heat to low, and simmer until tender and liquid has been absorbed, about 12-15 minutes. Fluff quinoa with a fork and transfer to a large bowl to cool.
  3. Stir in cherry tomato halves, mozzarella and basil.
  4. Combine lemon juice and oil; stir to blend. Pour over quinoa mix and toss well. Season with salt and pepper.
