Instructions Checklist
  • Bring chicken broth and quinoa to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until most of the broth is absorbed, 10 to 15 minutes.

  • Stir tomatoes, spinach, and pesto into the quinoa. Simmer until remaining chicken broth is absorbed and quinoa is tender, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over quinoa mixture.

Cook's Note:

Substitute vegetable broth for chicken broth if desired.
