Quinoa is a great grain to use when cooking foods with strong flavors. This is because quinoa doesn't have a strong flavor of its own but takes on the flavor of whatever it is cooked with.
2 tablespoons olive oil 1 large yellow onion, diced 1 large zucchini, thinly sliced
1 cup uncooked quinoa
2 cups gluten-free chicken or vegetable broth V cup grated Parmesan cheese
In a large skillet (not nonstick), heat the olive oil over medium to medium-high heat. Sauté the onion and zucchini, stirring frequently, until the vegetables are nicely browned.
In the meantime, cook the quinoa according to package instructions, substituting chicken broth for water called for on the package. Serve the onion and zucchini mixture over the qui-noa. Sprinkle with Parmesan, salt, and pepper.
Makes 4 servings as a side dish
