- Tip: for extra tasty quinoa try adding veggie broth instead of water and playing with some spices such as curry, cumin or cardamom. For a delicious home-made veggie broth that is also very healing for someone who feels they may be coming down with a cold. Add about 4 cups water to large pot add 4-5 chopped celery stalks, 2-3 carrots cut in half and then halved again, about half a sliced yellow onion, 4-5 cloves of crushed garlic and some sea salt. This comforting broth is great for boosting the immune system.
