  • Add quinoa and cover with broth.
  • Add lots of paprika and turmeric, to taste, with a big pinch of dried basil and salt.
  • Cover and let simmer ~ 25 minutes.
  • While quinoa cooks, rinse asparagus and break off the woody ends where they snap naturally.

  • Serve asparagus cut on top of quinoa and enjoy!
