This is really healthy and an excellent side dish or a light meal. I recommend letting the quinoa "toast" in the oil for just one or two minutes before you add the broth. The low sodium chicken broth is a good idea---quinoa absorbs salt more than other grains, so if you used regular chicken broth you might find it too salty. Since I like my sugar snap peas more on the raw side, I think I will toss them in with the artichoke hearts next time. Really a very tasty recipe.

This is seriously simple and good. I add more artichoke hearts than called for. I also made it one time with a little oyster sauce drizzled on top. Don't use chicken boulion.
