Directions

1. Place quinoa in a strainer and rinse under running water until the water runs clear. 2. In a medium pot, combine the quinoa and 1 1/4 cups vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and cook for 25 minutes or until the liquid is completely absorbed. 3. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, heat oil over medium-high. 4. Add onion and cook until golden brown, stirring occasionally. 5. Add celery, carrots, spices (except parsley and cilantro), salt and 1/4 cup vegetable broth. Simmer for 5 minutes. 6. Add zucchini and raisins. Cook for 1 minute. Add additional 1/4 cup vegetable broth if too dry. 7. Toss cooked quinoa and 1/4 cup vegetable broth with vegetables and stir until evenly mixed. 8. Top with fresh parsley or cilantro, if desired. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve.
