  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 600 g (22 oz) squid or calamari, cleaned, cut into rings
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2-3 onions, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 quart vegetable broth, hot
  • parsley
  • salt, ground black pepper to taste
  1. Put quinoa in a colander and rinse thoroughly with hot water, tossing it around with your hands. Drain.
  2. Heat a heavy non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add oil, then add onion and cook until softened.
  3. Add calamari (or squid) and fry for a few minutes. Add garlic and cook for 1 min. Then add about 1 cup hot vegetable broth, parsley, salt and pepper and cook until squid is soft (adding more broth if liquid evaporates).
  4. Add quinoa and stir for 1 minute, or until well coated. Continue stirring occasionally and adding hot liquid as necessary until quinoa is soft.
  5. Serve hot or cold, drizzled with some olive oil.
