Quinoa Pilaf

Quinoa Pilaf

Chicken broth in this recipe creates a richer but slightly oily taste - try with water and see which you like better.

  • Yield: 4 servings


  • 2 tablespoon(s) olive oil
  • 1/2 cup(s) onion finely chopped
  • 1 cup(s) quinoa rinsed
  • 1 3/4 cup(s) chicken broth or water


1. Heat the olive oil in a small saucepan that has a lid. Add the onion and stir, cooking until soft, about 5 minutes. Do not brown.

2. Add the rinsed quinoa and stir. Add a pinch of kosher salt and black pepper. Continue to stir and cook for about 5 minutes.

3. Add the chicken broth or water all at once. Stir. Bring to a boil. Cover. Turn heat to low. Cook for 15 minutes or until liquid is absorbed.

Add a pat or two of butter if you like.
