Quinoa with a Lemon Twist

I've been on a quinoa ( Pronounced Ken- Wa ) kick.
It's supposed to be good for you, all I know is
that it makes for a good tasting side dish.

1 teaspoon olive oil
1 cup quinoa, rinsed
1 fresh lemon, zest and juice of
1 1/3 cups chicken stock
table salt to taste

In a medium saucepan, heat oil over medium heat.
Add quinoa and cook until toasted about 4 minutes.
Stir in chicken broth and table salt to taste.
Bring to a boil then reduce heat to low,
cover pan and cook for about 20 minutes.
Remove pan from heat and fluff with a fork.
Cool some and stir in lemon zest and juice.
Serve warm or at room temperature.
