Zesty Lemon Quinoa



Servings: 4

Although quinoa is great on its own, the extra spice of this dish makes it very unique.

1 Cup Quinoa

1⁄2 Cup Toasted Pine Nuts or Toasted Pecans

1⁄4 Cup Olive Oil

1⁄4 Cup Lemon Juice

2 Teaspoon Freshly Grated Lemon Zest 1 Teaspoon Ground Cumin

1⁄4 Teaspoon Cayenne

1⁄2 Cup Chopped Flat-Leaf Parsley

Sea Salt and Fresh ground black pepper


Rinse quinoa in a fine strainer for a few seconds. Transfer to a medium saucepan, add 1 teaspoon sea salt and 11⁄4 cups water. Bring to a boil, cover, and reduce to a simmer. Cook until water is completely absorbed, about 18 to 20 minutes. Transfer quinoa to a medium bowl along with pine nuts, lemon zest, cumin, cayenne, parsley, drizzle with lemon juice and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper; toss until well combined. Serve warm or at room temperature.
