Here's the delicious quinoa recipe of this week:
Creamy Quinoa Primavera
1 1/2 cups uncooked white quinoa
3 cups vegetable broth
3 oz cream cheese
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
2 teaspoons butter
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
5 cups thinly sliced or bite-size pieces assorted uncooked vegetables
2 tablespoons grated Romano cheese
1. In 2-quart saucepan, heat quinoa and broth to boiling; reduce heat. Cover; simmer 15 to 20 minutes or until all broth is absorbed. Stir in cream cheese and basil.
2. In 10-inch nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Cook garlic in butter about 30 seconds, stirring frequently, until golden. Stir in vegetables.

3. Cook 2 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until vegetables are crisp-tender.
4. Add quinoa mixture; toss. Sprinkle with Romano cheese.
And voila! You're done. And guaranteed to impress with this delicious meal!
