How to Make It

Step 1    

In a large, deep skillet, heat the olive oil. Add the leeks and a generous pinch each of salt and pepper and cook over moderately low heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, 10 to 12 minutes. Add the quinoa and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until dry, about 5 minutes.

Step 2    

Add the broth and water to the skillet and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer over moderately low heat until the quinoa is tender and the liquid has been absorbed, about 20 minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat and let stand for 10 minutes. Fluff with a fork, season with salt and pepper and serve.

Review Body: This is a very simple and delicious recipe. I never know what to do with quinoa unless it comes with a seasoning packet, but this was perfect for my first time making a quinoa dish from scratch. I made a pork roast and steamed broccoli to go with it, and it all worked well together. Thank you for the recipe!
