    About this recipe: Quinoa is a great alternative to rice - it's lighter, tastes nutty and cooks in about half the time. In this recipe it's tossed with onion, garlic and fresh herbs to make a quick and easy side dish.

    Serves: 4 

    • 30g butter
    • 185g uncooked quinoa
    • 2 cups vegetable stock
    • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
    • handful chopped fresh parsley
    • 2 sprigs thyme, stems removed
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1 small onion, finely chopped
    • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice (optional)

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the quinoa and stir-fry until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add stock and bring to the boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook for 15 minutes, or until quinoa is tender.
    2. In a bowl, mix quinoa together with garlic, parsley, thyme, salt and onion. Sprinkle with lemon juice, and serve.
