Herbed Quinoa

Recipe By :
Serving Size : 4 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Grains Vegetarian

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 c Quinoa -- thoroughly rinsed
2 c -- Water
1 t Salt
1/4 c Olive oil
1 clove garlic -- peel and mince
Freshly ground black pepper
1/2 c fresh basil -- OR
1/4 c fresh tarragon
2 tb Fresh thyme

*If the listed herbs are unavailable, substitute an equal amount of
parsley, or 1 ts. dried thyme, basil or oregano.

Put quinoa, water and salt in a medium-size saucepan, cover, and bring
to a
boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium, cover partially so
steam can escape, and cook at a slow boil until grains have doubled in
size, become translucent, and are cracked open so that the spiral germ
the grain is visible, about 12 minutes. If necessary, continue
uncovered, until all the liquid has been absorbed or has evaporated,
may take 1 more minute.

While quinoa is cooking, combine olive oil, garlic and a generous
amount of
pepper in a warmed medium-size bowl. Just before the quinoa is
coarsely but neatly chop basil leaves and mix them into the olive oil
mixture. When quinoa is ready, add it to the olive oil, tossing until
is thoroughly combined. Check seasonings and serve immediately.

Nice accompaniment to steamed fish or to roasted meats or poultry. Or
serve as a main course along with a variety of vegetables and salads.
