“A delicious side dish that goes with just about anything.” - by XtinaU
Original recipe yields 6 servings
- Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the quinoa, and cook 2 minutes until toasted. Pour in the chicken broth, onion, garlic, thyme, and black pepper. Cover, and let come to a boil. Once boiling, stir in the frozen peas. Recover, reduce heat to medium-low, and continue simmering until the quinoa is tender and has absorbed the chicken stock, 15 to 20 minutes.
- Stir in half of the Pecorino Romano cheese and the parsley until evenly mixed. Scoop the quinoa into a serving dish, and sprinkle with the remaining Pecorino Romano cheese to serve.

"I'm a self admitted tinkerer. Can't leave a recipe alone- mine included. That being said, this recipe is fantastic and here's what I did (no disrespect to the author). I added 4 sprigs fresh thyme ('c..." See moreuz I had it), 1/2 tsp cumin, 1/2 tsp grnd coriander, cayenne pepper and a few more peas (1 cup). This was a side dish for Baked Falafel and was superb!"
"I made this yesterday afternoon as a snack for my kids. It was delicious. My 18 month old gobbled it up. I would add more peas next time and not add them until the quinoa was almost cooked. I pref..." See moreer my peas bright green and just barely cooked. I might also saute the onion and garlic in the butter while the quinoa was roasting, just to get more flavor from the garlic and onions. I thought this was very similar to risotto and might add shrimp next time to make it a full meal. Yummy!"
