Pine Nut Lemon Quinoa

Quinoa is a wonderful food to try. It is a delicious grain that can work well as a side dish to a piece of fish.

You’ll Need

1/4 cup pine nuts
1 cup quinoa
2 cups water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2 stalks celery, chopped
1/4 red onion, chopped
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 bunch fresh parsley, chopped

Salt and pepper to taste


Directions
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 1/4 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium and cook until quinoa is tender and water has been absorbed, approximately 12 minutes. Cool slightly, then fluff with a fork.

Transfer the quinoa to a serving bowl and stir in the pine nuts, lemon juice, celery, red onion, cumin and parsley. Adjust salt and pepper before serving.
