  • 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. Sauté the onion for 8 minutes over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the cream cheese and hot 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.
