Quinoa Side Dish

This side dish is super tasty!  The kids loved it and even my husband said it was great and had more than one helping!  Enjoy!

I adapted this recipe from AllRecipes.

-1 tbsp butter
-1 cup uncooked quinoa {I used Trader Joe's  Organic TriColor Quinoa}
-2 cups vegetable or chicken broth {I used 2 cups water and two chicken bouillon cubes}
-1/2 tsp garlic powder {or 2 tsp chopped}
-2 tsp dried parsley {or 2 tbsp fresh chopped}
-1/4 tsp dried thyme {or 1 1/2 tsp fresh chopped}
-1/4 tsp salt
-2 tbsp dried minced onion {or 1 small onion, finely chopped}
-dash of fresh lemon juice, optional {great with or without it!}

1. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
2. Add quinoa and toast gently for about 5 minutes.
3. Stir in broth {water & bouillon}, garlic powder, parsley, thyme, salt and onion; bring to a boil.
4. Reduce to a simmer, cover and cook for 15 minutes.
5. Sprinkle with lemon juice if desired.
6. Enjoy!
*This was also great warmed up the next day!
