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!
-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
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!
