Cilantro Lime Quinoa

I made this Cilantro Lime Quinoa as a side dish with tacos while my parents were visiting and everyone raved about it. It's bursting with flavor and couldn't be easier to make. My husband, who isn't a huge fan on quinoa, even liked this. Rice could also be substituted if you don't like quinoa or don't have it on hand.

Serves 4
2 cups vegetable broth (I used chicken)
1 cup quinoa, rinsed and drained
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/3 cup cilantro, chopped
1/4 teaspoon sugar
Salt and pepper, to taste
In a large pot bring the 2 cups of broth to a boil. Stir in the quinoa and cook until the broth is evaporated and quinoa is tender, about 20 minutes. Meanwhile whisk together garlic, lime juice, cilantro and sugar. Pour quinoa into a medium bowl and fluff with a fork. Pour the lime cilantro mixture over the quinoa and stir to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve warm.
