This makes a nice side dish. It is from the cookbook 1,000 Vegetarian Recipes by Carol Gelles. I toast quinoa before I use it (you can toast it and store it that way in a jar for about a month or so), and it adds a nice dimension of flavor. I'm not a vegetarian, and I usually use chicken broth instead of vegetable broth. Also, you could substitute yellow squash instead of zucchini, if you'd like.
