Sunday recap: Easter mass, washed clothes, had some Thai food in Hollywood n later made this for dinner. My first time making quinoa (keen-wah) with chicken broth. I'm not all that knowledgeable with spices so I didn't throw anything in for this time. BF said the quinoa was a bit bland so we threw in a dash of salt which made it a little better.
le finished product =P
1 cup organic quinoa (mine from Trader Joe's)
2 cups chicken broth (also from TJ's)
diced up a carrot and a tomato n tossed it in, brought to a boil
rinsed the quinoa, throw it in
bring to a boil for a few min, simmer for about 10 minutes on low heat then cover n turn off
quinoa is ready to go!
a tossed one of these bad boys in the oven (tightly covered in foil)
20 min at 400 F degrees
took it out, seasoned it with a bit of seasoning salt and rubbed some lemon, flip over
put in the oven again for about 15 min (not in foil)
check to see it's cooked thoroughly and you're set!
