    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Rinse quinoa well before cooking. Prepare quinoa according to package directions.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, combine onion and oil in a medium nonstick skillet.
    3. 3
      Cook over medium-high heat until onion is browned, about 15 minutes, stirring frequently. (If onion starts to burn, reduce heat.)
    4. 4
      Set aside.
    5. 5
      Rinse quinoa with cold water until cool; drain.
    6. 6
      In a large mixing bowl, combine quinoa, onion, and remaining ingredients (except tomato).
    7. 7
      Mix well.
    8. 8
      Stir in tomato.
    9. 9
      Serve at room temperature.
    10. 10
      HELPFUL HINT: Quinoa must be rinsed well before cooking to remove a natural bitter tasting but harmless coating. (The coating naturally protects quinoa from birds and insects.).
    11. 11
      All ingredients except tomato can be prepared, combined, and chilled up to one day ahead. Add a small amount of broth if mixture seems dry, then stir in tomato.
