- 1 tbsp butter
- 1 small yellow onion, diced small
- 3-4 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 cups vegetable broth
- 1 cup uncooked quinoa
- 1/4 tsp salt, or to taste
- 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
Add the vegetable broth and quinoa. Cover, and allow to simmer until liquid is mostly absorbed and quinoa is cooked, about fifteen minutes.
Remove from heat, and gently mix quinoa to distribute any excess moisture. Season with salt to taste, and top with Parmesan cheese, or, for a vegan version, mix in nutritional yeast instead of the cheese.
Makes 3 servings of vegetarian quinoa.
