 Ingredients List

  • 2 tb Extra Virgin Olive Oil; Note
  • -1
  • 1 1/2 lb Onions; Thinly Sliced
  • Salt And Pepper; To Taste
  • 1 1/2 c Quinoa; Rinse Well, Drain,
  • -(1/2 Lb)
  • 2 1/2 c Water


Note 1: Original recipe used 3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Heat 1 Tbsp oil in a large nonstick skillet (we added a little water to
compensate for the lessened oil). Add the onions and cook over low heat,
stirring often, until meltingly soft and deep golden, about 30 min, add a
little bit of water as the onions begin to look dry. Season with salt and
pepper and transfer to a plate.

Heat the remaining oil in a large saucepan. Add the quinoa and cook over
high heat, stirring, until light golden and fragrant, 3 - 4 min. Add the
water and 3/4 tsp salt and bring to a boil. Cover and cook over low heat
until all of the water has been absorbed and the grains are tender, 12 - 15
min. Fluff the quinoa with a fork and stir in the onions. Season with salt
and pepper. Transfer the quinoa to a bowl and serve at once.

Serves 8 (supposed to)

This was wonderful!! We really enjoyed it...but it wouldn't begin to serve
8 in our house.
