  • Quinoa has fewer calories and carbs than rice.
  • It has more protein than rice.
  • Quinoa they say keeps you full for longer than rice.
  • Quinoa can help with weight loss.

I had some fresh dill weed leftover from another recipe I was making so decided to add some to the quinoa. Since everyone’s palate is different, you can add or less than what I listed on the printable recipe card.

Tips
  • While not necessary, you might want to rinse the quinoa before cooking it. Most of the quinoa available in stores is “pre-rinsed” but it can’t hurt by running it under a little more water “just in case”.
  • If you don’t have any chicken or vegetable broth on hand remember you can always use some Better than Bouillon (no affiliation) to make your own broth.
