Quinoa Pilaf

You can lighten this recipe up by using non-fat parm but I love it this way and it still is a reasonable calorie count. The quinoa makes this pilaf extra nutritional. One of my family's favorite sides. Could also be a good main meal by adding cubed chicken breast or just leave vegetarian (use vegetable stock instead of chicken). Sometimes I add a different variety of veggies like green beans.Submitted by: CLINARD

The original recipe used 2c cracked wheat soaked for 30 min in hot water then wrung out and added into the salad. I added the quinoa instead.Submitted by: NGSGODDESS
