Organic Quinoa

I could eat this stuff every day! And, the best thing about it is that the only ingredient in the quinoa is quinoa (always a good thing, right?!) and you can buy it bulk at Costco! Oh, happy day!
{ Prep Time: 10 mins / Cooking Time: 25 mins / Difficulty: Easy / Yields: 4 servings }

2 cups organic vegetable or chicken stock
1 cup quinoa
1/2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup sun dried tomatoes, diced
1/2 large yellow onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/3 cup fresh parsley or basil, (or a combination of the two) chopped
kosher salt and ground pepper, to taste

1. In a medium sized saucepan, combine the quinoa and broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and lightly simmer for 15 minutes or until liquid is nearly absorbed and the quinoa is tender. Add the sun dried tomatoes to pot, cover and allow them to steam with quinoa for 5 mins. Meanwhile, in a medium skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions soften and become translucent, about 4 mins. Add garlic and saute until fragrant, but not brown. Fluff the steamed quinoa and tomatoes with a fork; add the onion/garlic mixture, pine nuts and herbs. Season with salt and pepper and serve as a side dish. Is great served chilled with a salad too!
