Pine Nut Pilaf With Quinoa

100% would make this recipe again!
Recipe Description
Quinoa has a delicate, earthy, nutty flavor and a soft, somewhat crunchy consistency that reminds me a little of caviar. This recipe is a quick and easy pilaf that marries well with most beef, pork and chicken entrees.

Serves Tool

Serves To:USMetric
3 Tablespoon(T)  fresh flat leaf parsley, chopped
4 Cup(c)  water
2 Cup(c)  quinoa, rinsed until the water runs clear
2 Tablespoon(T)  pine nuts
1 Clove(clv)  garlic, minced
1/2   red bell pepper, finely chopped
1   medium onion, finely chopped
1 Tablespoon(T)  olive oil
1 Pinch(pn)  salt, to taste
1 Pinch(pn)  black pepper, to taste


Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the onions, bell peppers, garlic and pine nuts. Cook for 4 minutes, or until the onions are soft but not brown. Add the quinoa and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the water. Season with salt and black pepper. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes, or until the quinoa is tender and the water is absorbed. Add the parsley and fluff the quinoa with a fork.


Additional notes

Nutty Nutrition

It's actually the texture of the quinoa in this dish that's more nutty than the pine nuts. The bell peppers add color, along with any other veggies you want to add.
