Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 20 minutes
Total: 30 minutes

Serves:

Ingredients

  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh cilantro for garnish

Instructions

  1. Rinse the quinoa under cold water to remove any bitterness.

  2. In a saucepan, bring the vegetable broth to a boil. Add the quinoa and reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until the quinoa is tender and the liquid is absorbed.

  3. While the quinoa is cooking, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the diced onion and garlic and cook until softened.

  4. Add the cumin, coriander, paprika, and cayenne pepper to the skillet and cook for an additional minute to toast the spices.

  5. Once the quinoa is cooked, fluff it with a fork and add it to the skillet with the spiced onion mixture. Stir well to combine.

  6. Toast the sliced almonds in a separate dry skillet over medium heat until golden brown and fragrant. Remove from heat and set aside.

  7. Serve the spiced quinoa in bowls, topped with the toasted almonds, crumbled feta cheese, and fresh cilantro. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
