Cheesy Zucchini Quinoa

When I saw this on Closet Cooking I thought it looked like an easy and healthy side dish.  I had a huge zucchini to use from a friends garden and thought this would be a good way to use some of it.  It was very easy and I liked it, but Bill said he thought it tasted like grass.  It does have a strong raw zucchini taste, and next time I might try throwing the zucchini in halfway through the cooking process to get it a little more cooked.

1. Bring Quinoa and broth to a boil over medium heat, reduce the heat and simmer covered until the broth has been absorbed and the quinoa is tender, about 15-20 minutes.
