Betty Tip: This main dish tastes as good as it looks and will be requested again and again. Vegetable broth and chicken broth are available in convenient 32-ounce resealable cartons. Cooking grains in broth adds flavor and pizzazz to your recipes.
Prep Time: 30 Minutes

4 Servings (1 3/4 cups each)
Whole Grain Serving: 2



    • 1 cup uncooked quinoa
    • 6 cups water

    • 1 lb salmon fillets
    • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
    • 20 stalks fresh asparagus, cut diagonally into 2-inch pieces (2 cups)
