- Bring the quinoa and chicken broth to a boil in a saucepan; cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer until the moisture is completely absorbed, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat; stir the pesto through the quinoa. Fold the tomato into the mixture. Season with salt and pepper to serve.

"I hadn't thought of serving quinoa with pesto before so this recipe was a great idea starter for me. As well as the pesto, I added lots more tomatoes, sun dried tomatoes, chopped olives, chopped spina..." See morech, pine nuts and ate the whole thing with a little grated Parmesan on top. Delicious!"
