Pesto Quinoa

This is my first success with Quinoa.  I have shared it with a few others that have tried and loved it as well.  The picture and recipe is from


  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed and drained
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons basil pesto
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Bring the quinoa and chicken broth to a boil in a saucepan; cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer until the moisture is completely absorbed, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat; stir the pesto through the quinoa. Fold the tomato into the mixture. Season with salt and pepper to serve.
