In a large saucepan of 2 cups water, cook quinoa according to package instructions; set aside. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly oil a 2 quart baking dish or coat with nonstick spray.

This is super quick, easy and absolutely delicious. I boil my quinoa in 2 cups of chicken broth instead of water for some extra flavor. Serve with some whole grain tortilla chips!
