  • Place the quinoa in a strainer and rinse until it stops foaming. About 5 minutes.
  • In a medium saucepan mix the quinoa with the vegetable broth and cook over medium-high heat. Wait until it starts to boil, lower the heat, and simmer for 20 minutes, covered and without stirring. The water will evaporate.
  • In a large skillet or large saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon of oil. Sautee the onion for 8 minutes over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the cream cheese and water, stir to form a cream.
  • Add the cooked quinoa and parmesan cheese, stir to mix, if too thick add more water.
  • Add the lemon zest and juice, stir and taste, adjust seasoning.
  • Serve hot.
