Pistachio and Boursin Quinoa

I am no extreme coupon-er but I do love a good coupon.  Not too long ago I got a coupon for Boursin cheese spread.  It was a night I wouldn't get home until 7:30 so the hubs was in charge of dinner.  We created this retardedly easy recipe that set him up for success in the kitchen.  I didn't know it would end up being so freaking delicious!  We have made it several times since.  It is perfect with fish and a salad, maybe some roasted or grilled veggies, too.

Pistachio and Boursin Quinoa
1/2 lrg onion, chopped
2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
2 C vegetable or chicken broth (low sodium)
1 C quinoa
1/3 C roughly chopped pistachios
2 oz Boursin garlic and herb cheese spread

   Heat oil in a 2 qt sauce pan over medium heat.  Saute onions until soft and translucent, 5-6 minutes.  Add broth and bring to a boil.
   Add quinoa and bring liquid back to a boil.  As soon as it reaches a boil, cover and turn heat to low.  Cook for 15-17 minutes, until you can see the germ ring layer clearly around the individual grains.
   Stir in Boursin and pistachios.
   Serves 3-4.
