 *Pronounced Keen-wa, quinoa is a mild-flavored grain that was eaten by the
 Incas.  It is now grown in Colorado and New Mexico and is available in
 natural food stores...it is a very high as complete protein.
  Rinse quinoa in a strainer and remove any debris.  Place in a large
 non-stick saucepan and toast, until it darkens slightly.  Add broth.
 Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat and simmer about 20 minutes until
 tender.  In another skillet, heat butter; add onion and garlic and cook
 tender, about 3 minutes.  Stir in quinoa, lemon zest, thyme parsley, salt
 and pepper to taste.
