Directions:
Heat oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat.

Sauté onion in oil for 5 minutes, until translucent. Add garlic and carrot, and cook 3 minutes more.

Stir in quinoa and chicken broth, and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook 15 to 20 minutes, or until quinoa is tender and fluffy.

In a bowl, toss quinoa together with almonds and parsley. Serve hot or at room temperature.
