Quinoa, a whole grain with a nutty taste and chewy texture, is a nice compliment to the sweet bite of peas.

1 tablespoon olive oil
½ cup chopped onion
1 tablespoon minced garlic
½ teaspoon dried thyme
1 cup quinoa
2 cups vegetable broth
1 cup peas
½ teaspoon salt
¼ cup slivered toasted almonds

1) Heat oil in a small pot over medium. Add onion, garlic, and thyme; cook 3 minutes, until softened.

2) Add quinoa and broth; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook 12 minutes, until water is absorbed. Add peas and salt; stir and cover to steam 5 minutes. Sprinkle with almonds and serve.
