Oh, how delicious this quinoa recipe is .. using pesto & broccoli!! Delicious!
For a long time, a container of quinoa sat collecting dust in my kitchen cabinet.
I bought it because I’d heard – many times – about how easy and extremely healthy it is (full of fiber, protein, and antioxidants).
It made my pantry look all modern and healthy, sitting there … unopened.
The thing was, I wasn’t sure: 1) how to cook it and 2) how to season it so it tasted delicious instead of bland.
I finally decided to dive in and try it when I thought: why not mix pesto in?
I tried adding a broccoli and lemon pesto.
And I found that quinoa has a satisfying, nutty texture that’s complemented perfectly by a creamy pesto made of broccoli, onion, lemon, and pine nuts.
It was really, really tasty. And really, really easy.
I’m now quinoa’s biggest fan. Does Quinoa have a Facebook page? I would ‘Like’ it…
