Artichoke Quinoa Salad Recipe

30 Jun

A friend of mine recently introduced me to this delicious quinoa recipe. I’ve cooked quinoa a couple of times before, and honestly, it just wasn’t that good. We still had a big bag of it in the pantry, so I was excited to find a decent recipe to use it in. With the fresh flavors of lemon an parsley, this dish is perfect for summer!

Here’s what you’ll need…

Ingredients: 

1 tbsp olive oil

1/4 cup yellow onion, diced

1 teaspoon dry thyme (or 1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme)

1  6 oz. jar marinated and quartered artichoke hearts

1 cup chicken broth

1/2 cup quinoa

1 cup fresh parsley, chopped

2 tablespoons lemon juice

Here’s what you’ll need to do…

Directions:

1. Add oil and onions to a medium pan and sautee over medium-high heat until softened. Add artichokes and cook for another 2-3 minutes.

2. Add the chicken broth and quinoa to the pan. Cover and simmer for 20 mins. (liquid should be fully absorbed)

3. Remove from heat. Add parsley and lemon juice. Mix well and enjoy.

I hope you enjoy this recipe. We paired it with Mediterranean Chicken for a full meal. I’d love to hear what you think of it if you try it, so leave a comment and let me know. Enjoy!
