Description

This quinoa dish goes extremely well with fish. I bake the fish with kumquats as well. Try it with multi-colored quinoa.

Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 leek, thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 8 kumquats, thinly sliced
  • salt to taste
  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups chicken stock
Directions
  1. 1. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir leek, garlic, and kumquats until brown, 5 to 10 minutes. Season with salt.
  2. 2. Cook and stir quinoa into kumquat mixture until quinoa is toasted, about 1 minute; add chicken stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer until quinoa has absorbed the chicken stock, about 20 minutes.
