This recipe, like so many, was truly created out of necessity. Typically, I would have used chicken broth, but I was out. I did have beef broth though, and thus, Pepper and Parmesan Beef Quinoa was born.
Pepper and Parmesan Beef Quinoa
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup beef broth
- 1 cup quinoa
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper (or to taste)
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 3 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
Make the quinoa according to the box directions. (So I added into a medium saucepan on high, the water, beef broth, and quinoa. Bring to a boil uncovered, then turn the heat to low, add the salt, stir, and cover. Cook for 15 minutes, then remove from the heat. Keep covered for 5 minutes, and lastly, fluff.) After it’s cooked, add the pepper, butter, and Parmesan and enjoy!
This dish is quick and easy as a side or could be great with my Garlic Beef and Onions with Green Beans recipe.
