Lemon Quinoa

I found this dish while on my healthier eating quest. It really has great flavor and you don't miss rice or potatoes when you eat quinoa! Click on the heading below for the link to the recipe from

Lemony Quinoa from

Toast the pine nuts briefly in a dry skillet over medium heat.

This will take about 5 minutes, and stir constantly as they will burn easily. Set aside to cool. In a saucepan, combine the quinoa, water and salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium and cook until quinoa is tender and water has been absorbed, about 10 minutes. Cool slightly, then fluff with a fork. Transfer the quinoa to a serving bowl and stir in the pine nuts, lemon juice, celery, onion, cayenne pepper, cumin and parsley.

Adjust salt and pepper if needed before serving.

This was SO good!!! I was very happy with how it turned out and even hubby would eat it over and over again. 2 forks up!!
