Quinoa Plus 4 P’s – Dr. Ann’s Favorite

This is my all-time favorite quinoa recipe. Just a magical flavor combination.


  • 1 cup quinoa1

  • 2/3 cups low-sodium broth (vegetable or chicken)

  • 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

  • 3/4 cup frozen baby peas

  • 1/4 cup toasted pine nuts

  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley

  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese


Stirring constantly, toast the quinoa in the olive oil over medium high heat in sauce pan. Once fragrant and kernels beginning to toast, add chicken or vegetable broth and cook according to package instructions. Toward the end of cooking add the frozen peas and replace lid until the peas are thawed and heated thru (about 5-6 minutes). Gently stir in pine nuts, parsley and parmesan. Season to taste with salt and pepper then serve.Quinoa and the 4 P’s
