Sauté the onions and garlic in extra virgin olive oil in a medium-size pot. Add quinoa, broth, chicken and a pinch of salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to low. After 15 minutes, stir in zucchini, lemon juice, almonds and 3/4 of the basil. Turn heat off and replace lid for 2 minutes. Finish with the remaining basil and Parmesan cheese. Add salt and pepper to taste.
