I loosely followed the recipe on the box for this
Ingredients
  • Quinoa: 2c water, 1c quinoa – follow instructions on box
  • 1/2 cup carrot, diced 6 cups quinoa, cooked (basic recipe)
  • 1/2 cup green onion, diced 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup celery, diced 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/4 cup green pepper, diced 1 cup almonds, sliced
  • 1/4 cup sweet red pepper, diced 1/4 tsp oregano
  • salt to taste
Instructions
  1. Sauté chopped vegetables in olive oil until clear, yet crisp: stir in oregano. Add sautéed vegetables to cooked, hot quinoa, mixing well. Add salt to taste. Dry-roast almonds in heavy skillet until lightly golden. Add almonds and mix. Serves 6-8. Quinoa pilaf served as a side dish with fish or chicken is delicious. Vary the pilaf using your favorite vegetables, or by cooking the quinoa in chicken, fish or vegetable stock instead of water.

  1. I find that if I don’t make quinoa with a stock of some kind, I find it unspectacular also. Probably some caramelized onions or something like that would knock it out of the park too. Looks like a good base. 🙂
