Lemony Quinoa

Lemony Quinoa

Course: Side Dish, Snack
Cuisine: Vegan

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups water
  • sea salt to taste
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 stalks celery chopped
  • 1/4 red onion chopped
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 bunch fresh parsley chopped

Instructions

  • Toast the pine nuts briefly in a dry skillet over medium heat. This will take about 5 minutes, and stir constantly as they will burn easily. Set aside to cool.
  • In a saucepan, combine the quinoa, water and salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium and cook until quinoa is tender and water has been absorbed, about 10 minutes. Cool slightly, then fluff with a fork.
  • Transfer the quinoa to a serving bowl and stir in the pine nuts, lemon juice, celery, onion, cayenne pepper, cumin and parsley. Adjust salt and pepper if needed before serving.
