  • Melt butter in large saucepan on medium-high heat. Add onion; cook and stir 4 minutes or until onion is tender.
  • Add broth, quinoa, raisins and curry powder; stir. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 20 minutes or until broth is absorbed.
  • Stir in carrots and almonds; cover. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

How to Toast Quinoa

Toasting adds a deeper flavor and crunchier texture to quinoa. After rinsing quinoa, drain well. Heat a large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat. Add drained quinoa. Cook until quinoa dries out and becomes golden brown, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Transfer to bowl and continue as directed.

    I made this dish and loved it..... Very nice flavor, very Great texture, but I didn't add the raisins or almonds and I subbed the grated carrots with peas & carrots. I also add some parsley. Again.... A very (TASTY) dish ;-)
