Ingredients

  • 2 3/4 cups low-sodium chicken stock

  • 1 1/2 cups quinoa
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/8-1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

For the dressing: In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, lemon juice, basil, parsley, thyme, and lemon zest. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
