Ingredients

  • 1

    cup quinoa, rinsed well

  • ¼

    cup pine nuts

  • 2

    Tbl. olive oil

  • 2

    cloves garlic, thinly sliced

  • cup chopped fresh parsley

  • ¼

    cup raisins

  • 1

    Tbl. fresh lemon juice

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

Directions

Place the quinoa in a saucepan and cook over medium heat until toasted, about 2 minutes. Add 1 3/4 cups water (or use low-sodium chicken broth) and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, until the liquid is absorbed, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and let sit, covered, about 2 minutes. Meanwhile, toast the pine nuts in a skillet over medium-high heat, stirring, until golden, about 3 minutes; transfer to a plate. Add the olive oil and garlic to the skillet and cook over medium heat, stirring until golden, about 2 minutes. Transfer the garlic to the plate, reserving the oil. Fluff the quinoa with a fork. Add the pine nuts, garlic, reserved oil, parsley, raisins and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper and toss.
