  • Add quinoa, broccoli, broth and water to a large sauce pan. Bring the mixture to a boil, stir and then cover and reduce to simmer for 15 - 20 minutes. You want the quinoa to be fluffy and the water to be absorbed.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in nutritional yeast (or cheese). Taste and add salt and pepper if desired.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy!
