Quinoa Pilaf

2 Tablespoons olive oil
1/2 onion, chopped or 1 shallot, finely chopped
2 cups quinoa
4 cups chicken broth
1 teaspoon parsley flakes

In large fry pan with a lid, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion and quinoa. Saute until the quinoa starts to brown and the onion becomes clear.

Add chicken broth and parsley flakes and bring to a slight boil. Cover and reduce heat. Cook for 12 minutes, covered, until liquid is absorbed. Fluff with a fork, recover and allow to steam for another 10 – 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, and serve.
