Quinoa with Raisins and Onions

Quinoa with Raisins and Caramelized Onions

2 tbsp olive oil
3 large sweet white onions, halved and thinly sliced
½ tsp brown sugar
1 ½ cups quinoa
3 cups chicken stock
1 cup golden raisins
½ tsp dried tarragon (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste

Heat oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-low heat. Add onions and brown sugar. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until onions are very soft, 25-35 minutes. Sprinkle quinoa over onions and cook over medium-high heat until quinoa begins to toast and pop. Pour liquid over, stir and cook over low heat for 15 minutes or until liquids are absorbed. Add raisins and tarragon after 10 minutes. Before serving, add salt and pepper to taste.
