This is a fabulous quinoa pilaf that pairs well with grilled or broiled meats, or could even be a main vegetarian course. I like to have leftovers for breakfast with a fried egg on top. From the Eating Well magazine. Super healthy and yummy. If you use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth it is a vegan recipe.
