This was delicious! I halved the recipe because I 'thought' it would be just me eating this. I too sauteed the onions (red because that was all I had on hand) and garlic before adding the quinoa. I made this as a last minute thought...so I had to use dried parsley and didn't even have thyme on hand. Used chicken broth and instead of lemon juice I used a couple of good shakes of a lemon seasoning blend. When most of the broth was absorbed I just kept it covered and off the heat heat and it was a perfect combination of creamy and crunchy. I can see the possibility of adding lots of different veggie combos...peas, carrots, etc. to make pilaf. Very versatile. And I should have made the full recipe because my 12 y.o. tried it, loved it, and ate most of it. Thanks so much for sharing! (oh yeah...I rinsed the quinoa well before adding to the butter by putting it my cone shaped mesh coffee filter and running lots of water over it...easy!)
