  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Cover quinoa with vegetable broth in an oven-proof saucepan. Bring to a boil. Cover the saucepan with aluminum foil.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until quinoa is dry and fluffy, about 15 minutes. Keep covered.
  4. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Pour in vegetable oil. Cook and stir onion and garlic until soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, annatto paste, vinegar, paprika, oregano, cumin, and chipotle pepper. Cook until mixture is thick and stew-like, 10 to 15 minutes.
  5. Toss the mixture with the baked quinoa. Let cool, about 10 minutes. Season with salt.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Brown rice, wheat berries or barley can be substituted for the quinoa.
  • Keep the grain warm when adding the spices; this allows the grain to absorb the seasoning better. This technique applies to pasta and potato salads as well.
