Quinoa with Jalapenos and Caramelized Onions

I thought of giving the quinoa one more chance.  I guess it's the fact that by itself the quinoa is quite bland.  The onions and jalapenos are definitely the ones making this dish worth it.  Enjoy!
Ingredients:
-1 1/2 cups quinoa
-2 medium onions, thinly sliced
-4 Tbs butter, divided
-2 Tbs + 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
-1/2 cup apple juice
-2 Tbs soy sauce
-pickled jalapeno slices, for topping
Directions:
Cook quinoa according to package directions.
Meanwhile, in a large pan, heat 2 Tbs butter and 2 Tbs olive oil.  Add the onions and cook until soft and translucent.  Add the apple juice and cook until caramelized.
Once quinoa is cooked (all the water is absorbed), add 1/4 cup olive oil and remaining 2 Tbs butter.  Stir in soy sauce.  Mix well.
To serve, scoop a little quinoa onto the plate.  Top with caramelized onions and sliced pickled jalapenos.  Enjoy!
