This information is per serving.
Saturated Fat1 grams
- 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
- 1 cup quinoa, rinsed
- 1/4 cup pine nuts
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/2 large onion, chopped
- 1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley leaves
- Salt and pepper
Put the broth and quinoa in a medium sized saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, until liquid is absorbed and grain is tender.
Meanwhile, toast the nuts in a large dry skillet over medium-high heat until golden brown and fragrant, about 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove nuts from pan and set aside. Heat the oil in the same skillet over a medium-high heat. Add the onions and cook stirring occasionally, until the onions soften and begin to brown, about 6 minutes.
When the quinoa is done, fluff with a fork and transfer to a large serving bowl. Stir in the pine nuts, onions, and parsley. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
