Quinoa Pilaf



  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced or pressed
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed
  • 1 15-ounce can vegetarian stock (1 2/3 cup) or water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 10 turns freshly ground black pepper
  • 3/4 cup toasted almonds or pine nuts (optional)

1. Heat oil in a large saucepan. Saute onion and garlic in oil until softened, about 3 minutes. Add cumin and coriander. Add quinoa.

2. Add stock. Bring to a boil, cover the pan, turn heat to low, and cook 15 minutes, until most of the quinoa grains have unfurled their small white tails. Uncover pan and cook 5 more minutes to evaporate excess liquid.

3. Stir in optional nuts.
