PESTO QUINOA

1 cup quinoa
2 cups Bones & Marrow Bare Bones Broth
Pinch of sea salt
2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1 ½ cup cherry tomatoes, halved
½ cup red onion, chopped
1 cup baby arugula
½ – ¾ cup Bones & Marrow Pesto
Sea salt and black pepper to taste
Optional add-ins: ½ cup red bell pepper, ½ cup feta cheese, ½ cup pumpkin seeds

  1. Rinse the quinoa under cold water for a few minutes, until the water runs clear. Drain well and add the quinoa to a medium pot with the bone broth, pinch of sea salt and olive oil.
  2. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce to low and simmer until all of the broth has been absorbed, about 15 minutes.
  3. Once cooked, fluff with a fork and set aside to cool completely. To speed up cooling time, remove quinoa from the pot and add to a large salad bowl; once quinoa has stopped “steaming”, place bowl in the fridge to cool completely.
