Quinoa with Pine Nuts

Makes: 6 servings

Total Time: 45 minutes


  • 1-1/4 cup broth
  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 large onion, chopped
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Put the broth and quinoa in a medium-sized saucepan, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer. Cover and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, until liquid is absorbed and grain is tender.

Toast nuts in a large skillet over medium-high heat for 2 minutes (or until golden brown), stirring frequently. Remove nuts from pan and set aside. Heat oil in the same skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and cook for 6 minutes, until the onions soften and begin to brown.

When the quinoa is done, fluff with a fork and transfer to a large serving bowl. Stir in the pine nuts, onions, and parsley. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
