Quinoa with Red Peppers and Onions


1 Tbsp butter
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
2 teaspoons chopped garlic
1 cup uncooked quinoa
2 cups vegetable broth
2 tsp thyme
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 dash fresh lemon juice (optional)


Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the onion, red pepper and garlic, and saute until lightly browned. Add the quinoa, and toast, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in broth, and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, or until quinoa is tender.

In a bowl, toss quinoa together with thyme and salt. Sprinkle with lemon juice, and serve.
