Curried Quinoa

Loved this recipe that I got (and tweeked) from Pinterest. This makes a HUGE batch! Feel free to cut the recipe in half, or do what I do and freeze half for later use. I'll be experimenting with more quinoa combos later. I'm thinking a TexMex cilantro lime one next!

1 T. extra virgin olive oil
1 onion, diced
1 1/2 T. curry powder
2 1/3 c. quinoa
3 c. vegetable broth
1/2 c. apple juice
1 1/2 c. frozen peas
Salt & Pepper (to taste)

1. Saute onion in olive oil until tender. Add curry powder, quinoa, broth & juice.
2. Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 12-15 minutes until quinoa has absorbed all the liquid.
3. Fluff with a fork. Stir in frozen peas and season with salt and pepper.
