Quinoa is an ancient super grain that has more protein than any other grain. Try it with a Mexican twist! My family loves it! Optional is to add a bit of queso asadero or other Mexican cheese before serving.

Instructions Checklist
  • Melt butter in a pan; add quinoa and cook over medium heat until toasty, 3 to 5 minutes. Add broth and tomatoes. Season with salt, pepper, and cayenne. Cover and cook on low to medium-low until quinoa appears soft and translucent, and the germ ring is visible along the outside edge of the grain, about 20 minutes.
