Caramelized Onion and Parmesan Quinoa
A 6-ingredient quinoa recipe that's both gluten free and vegetarian, this Caramelized Onion and Parmesan Quinoa is a great side dish or light lunch.
Servings: 2 -4
- 1 cup Village Harvest quinoa
- 1 1/2 cup water
- 2 yellow onions sliced
- 2 tbsp butter
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 cup spinach packed
- Parmesan cheese for topping
- Optional: 1/4 tsp fresh rosemary
Cook quinoa with water according to instructions on the package.
While quinoa is cooking, slice onions into long strips and place in a large skillet over medium heat with the butter and olive oil, stirring occasionally until onions are soft and golden in color.
Add spinach to skillet with onions, stir.
Once quinoa is cooked, add to skillet with onions, stir.
Optional: stir in rosemary at this time. Rosemary adds a unique flavor to the dish, and I happened to like the recipe with and without it.
Top quinoa with parmesan cheese and enjoy!
