  • Pour vegetable broth and quinoa into the saucepan. Cover and simmer until quinoa is soft, about 20 minutes. Sprinkle dried basil on top.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute chicken broth for vegetarian broth if you like (though than the dish is no longer vegetarian).

If dish is still liquid after step 2, increase the heat and cook, uncovered, for 5 minutes more.
