Spinach Quinoa Pilaf

This recipe will use the spinach from the share.  It can also be adapted to include the shallot and the leek, replacing the onion and garlic.

1 T olive oil
1 onion chopped
1 garlic clove minced
1 cup quinoa
1 ¼ c water
1-2 bunches cleaned spinach
1 T lemon zest
Salt and pepper to taste

Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir onion and garlic until onion is softened, about 4 minutes. Add quinoa to onion mixture; cook and stir for about 1 minute more.

Pour water over quinoa mixture; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, cover saucepan, and simmer until quinoa is tender and water is absorbed, about 20 minutes.

Stir spinach and lemon zest into quinoa mixture; season with salt and pepper.
