Number of Servings: 4


    1 cup quinoa
    2 cups chicken broth, preferably fat free & low sodium
    1 tablespoon dried parsley
    1 teaspoon minced garlic
    a dash of pepper


Thoroughly rinse the quinoa with warm water for about 1 minute; otherwise it will not cook properly. Drain as well as possible without losing much. Add to a small pot with broth and bring to a boil. Boil until a fair amount of the water is absorbed; 10-15 minutes in. Add garlic & parsley and continue cooking until most of the water is gone; another 5 minutes or so. Remove from heat; cover and let rest for 5 minutes. Fluff & serve.

Serving Size: about a 1/2 cup
