Quinoa Pilaf With Peas And Almonds: Date Added: 21 Nov 2009 Ingredients:

3 cups vegetable stock (or water with 1 vegetable
bouillon cube)
1 1/2 cups raw quinoa
3 scallions -- white and green
parts - (to 4), thinly sliced
2 teaspoons salt-free all-purpose seasoning mix
1 1/2 cups frozen green peas -- thawed
2 tablespoons nonhydrogenated margarine
Salt -- to taste
1/3 cup slivered or sliced almonds

Cooking Instructions:

Bring the water or stock to a simmer in a large, heavy saucepan. Rinse the quinoa well in a fine sieve. Stir the quinoa into the boiling water along with the scallions and seasoning blend. Cover and cook at a gentle but steady simmer until all the water has been absorbed, about 15 minutes.

Stir in the peas and margarine, then season to taste with salt.

Transfer the pilaf to a serving bowl and scatter the almonds over the top. If time allows, you might like to lightly toast the almonds, either in a dry skillet over medium heat or in a 250 degree toaster oven. Watch carefully, they toast quickly!

This recipe yields 4 to 6 servings.
