“This quinoa dish goes extremely well with fish. I bake the fish with kumquats as well. Try it with multi-colored quinoa.”

Directions

  1. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir leek, garlic, and kumquats until brown, 5 to 10 minutes. Season with salt.
  2. Cook and stir quinoa into kumquat mixture until quinoa is toasted, about 1 minute; add chicken stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer until quinoa has absorbed the chicken stock, about 20 minutes.

So bright and citrus-y! I have such a hard time getting quinoa to taste like anything but quinoa, but this was a different story! I would definitely make this again (boyfriend agrees). Also, I've never cooked with kumquats - who knew they had so many seeds! Make sure to de-seed them as you slice them. I served this with pan-seared whitefish, but would go well with chicken too!
