Quinoa with Tomatoes and Basil

I got this weeks recipe from a chef friend at work. It's pretty straightforward and super yum.

1/4 c. diced white onions
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups cooked quinoa
6-8 cherry tomatoes, halved
couple sprigs Basil
Vegetable Broth
2 Tbs. (vegan) butter
1 Tbs. (vegan) Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper, to taste

Melt 1 1/2 Tbs. butter in skillet, add diced onions. When the onions are almost translucent, add the garlic. Keep sauteing until the onions are translucent and starting to caramelize. Add 1-2 Tbs. vegetable broth and quinoa. Cook the quinoa in veggie broth for great flavor. Stir for a couple minutes, then add tomatoes. Roll basil leaves and cut into strips. Add to skillet. As a final touch, add the Parmesan, and salt and pepper as desired.

I must apologize for not having pictures, but man, it's delish. You gotta try it. Now. Go, go make it. Stop reading. Food. Quinoa. Yum.
