Quinoa and Pesto
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. In addition to the brie or other cheeses, this combination is wonderful with raw or cooked vegetables. A big hit with baked potatoes, etc. Or, just eat the quinoa and pesto as it is. Also fabulous dolloped into hot soups.
1 cup quinoa, (white, red, or black or a combo)
Rinse and drain the quinoa. Put in a glass or ceramic batter bowl, add the water. Cover with a glass or ceramic lid or plate and cook in microwave 5 minutes on full power and then 10 minutes on half power (power level 5). Allow to stand until all liquid is absorbed. Or, combine quinoa and water in a saucepan, bring to a boil and then simmer until all liquid is absorbed, about 15 minutes.
