This is by far my (and my family's) favorite way to eat quinoa. I've even made this for very picky, non-whole-foods eaters, and they've all loved it, too.

I make it just like the recipe says, with one addition. After the onions and garlic (does the recipe call for garlic, or is that my addition, too?) are cooked, I add the dry quinoa and "toast" it for a few minutes before adding the broth. I've found that this helps reduce the bitterness of the quinoa. Oh, and I also use a little extra cumin.

I love this recipe!

Yum. Maybe this will be dinner tonight!
