Parmesan-Garlic Quinoa

This is an easy to make recipe for tri-colored quinoa flavored with garlic and Parmesan cheese. It’s a great side replacement for rice or potatoes.


1 cup Tri Colored Quinoa
2 cups Chicken Broth
1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
3 Cloves Garlic, minced
1/2 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese


Rinse quinoa very well then drain well and set aside.

Heat olive oil in a small saucepan over medium heat then add garlic and saute until just golden brown, stirring constantly, making sure you don’t over brown or burn it.

Add quinoa then toast for 1 minute, stirring frequently.

Add chicken broth then turn heat up to high and bring to a boil.

Place a lid on top then turn heat down to medium-low and cook until nearly all the liquid has been absorbed and quinoa is tender, about 15 minutes.

Stir in parmesan cheese then serve.

Pairs nicely with Smoked Chicken Breast and Air Fried Asparagus.
