Prep Time: 15 Min
Cook Time: 10 Min
Ready In: 25 Min

Servings: 6
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 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 bunch fresh parsley, chopped

Directions:
1. 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.

2. 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.

3. 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.
