Quinoa Tomato Basil Salad
4 cups chicken broth
1 package (12 ounces) quinoa
1 cup chopped green onions
1-1/2 cups each seeded and diced yellow and red tomatoes
½ cup fresh minced basil
2/3 cup basil olive oil
2/3 cup red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon crushed red pepper
¼ teaspoon pepper

In the American Kitchen® 3-quart saucepan, combine broth and quinoa. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Cover and simmer until broth is absorbed; about 15 minutes. Cool. Add the green onions, tomatoes and basil. In a bowl, combine the olive oil, vinegar, salt and peppers. Pour over quinoa mixture; toss to coat. Refrigerate until chilled. Serve on lettuce leaves. Yield: 8 cups or approximately 10 servings. This recipe can easily be halved, if serving a smaller group.

Health Benefits: Quinoa contains all nine of the essential amino acids, making it a great source of protein, as well as a gluten-free food.

Tips for Quinoa Tomato Basil Salad Recipe
• To make your own basil olive oil: Blanche 1 cup of basil leaves and blend them in a food processor with ½ cup olive oil and a pinch of salt. Pour the mixture through a fine-mesh strainer lined with a coffee filter. Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to a week.
• To seed a tomato: Slice the tomato in half from side to side. Scrape out the seeds using a small spoon.
• When substituting dried herbs for fresh, a simple rule is 1:3. 1 teaspoon dried equals 3 teaspoons (or 1 tablespoon) fresh. So in this recipe, ½ cup fresh equals 2 tablespoons and 2 teaspoons dried.

    This heavy-duty pot has a stay-cool handle that I really like. I don’t have to fumble around looking for potholders when I need to grab it off the stove. That makes my cooking adventures easier — and safer!

    After using my two American Kitchen frying pans I knew this pot would be great. We own several Le Creuset pots and pans. They cook wonderfully but are becoming too heavy for comfort. I think the American Kitchen products cook and clean equal to if not better than Le Creuset.

    It’s lovely and cooks like it should. Great handle and lid that work perfectly. My only complaint is that – in my opinion – it doesn’t look like the advertising photo. For a long time I had been searching for a 3 qt pan that was sort of “tall and skinny” 😉 for using with clip-on candy thermometers. After looking at the photos I received in the mail, I thought I had finally found one and was disappointed when I received this one. For usual cooking it works like a dream and I will use it happily for years. Thanks

    I’ve been cooking with this pan since October 2015 and been enjoying it thoroughly. Furthermore, it is so easy to clean, actually as easy as Teflon, but I soak it in warm soapy water first. I also strongly recommend using the SOFT version of barkeeper friend. I appreciate the joy of buying the reasonably priced American made quality products that this Company offers.

    This stock pan is well made and far more worth the price. The finish is smooth and polished. Handle stays cool to touch. Lid sits perfectly and the packaging was done so good that the pan and pot arrived without any issue. I am quite pleased with this product.
