1. To make the baked pork chops and quinoa: Combine the ingredients for the marinade in a shallow dish and coat the pork chops. Let sit for 20-30 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, cook quinoa in 1 cup of salted water and set aside; you want it al dente as it will later absorb the cooking juices from veggies and pork. In the meantime, heat olive oil in a medium-deep skillet that goes in the oven to medium-high heat. Preheat your oven to grill or broiler mode at 420°F (220°C).

3. Drain the pork chops and collect the remaining marinade. Pan-sear the pork chops, about 2-3 minutes on each side. You aren’t looking for doneness here, just for good color. When both sides of the pork chops are golden, remove them from the skillet and set aside.

4. In the same pan, add sliced onion, then tomato, and let cook for about 3 minutes, then remove from the pan.

5. Add quinoa to the pan and stir fry for one minute to coat into the cooking juices. Add the onion and tomato back on top of quinoa, then top with pork chops. Drizzle the remaining marinade over the skillet.

6. Transfer the skillet into the preheated oven, and bake for 10-15 minutes in grill/broiler mode or 420°F (220°C). Remove the baked pork chops and quinoa from oven and cover with a lid for 2 to 3 minutes before serving. Top with chopped scallion. Yum!

    i don't understand the marinade part, one crumbled up bullion cube in one tablespoon of soy sauce? that doesn't seem right, that is barely any liquid
