This recipe is a crunchy, lemony, healthy dish that can be used as a side or as a light meal.
|1/4 cup NOW Real Food® Pine Nuts*|
|1 cup NOW Real Food® Organic 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 teaspoon cayenne pepper|
|1/2 teaspoon ground cumin|
|1 bunch fresh parsley, chopped|
- Toast the pine nuts briefly in a dry skillet over medium heat, stiring constantly as they will burn easily. This will take just a few minutes. 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.
