Cheesey Quinoa Veggie Salad

I really love quinoa. If you are not familiar with it, here is a link to this "super food." I have a friend coming over and wanted to serve something different with my lentil soup.
  • 1 and 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup quinoa, red or white rinsed first
  • 1/2 diced white onion
  • 1 diced green pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 cups spinach
  • sharp cheddar
  • salt and pepper
Rinse quinoa. In a medium sauce pan that is sprayed with cooking spray, sautee onions, peppers and garlic for 5-10 minutes, season with salt and pepper. Add in chicken broth, quinoa and spinach. Cook for 20-25 minutes or until soft. Place in serving bowl, and grate about 1/4 cup of sharp cheddar into quinoa and stir. Let quinoa cool to room temp. Garnish with cheese and enjoy.
